best software for archiving pics from digital cameras?

I have a Canon Powershot digital camera, which came with the Canon Zoombrowser software. It's alright, but I would like something a bit more powerful and developed. I need the software to be able to download the images from the camera when it is plugged in through USB. That's about the only stipulation I can think of. Any suggestions?

I may actually be insane.

I just use XP's in-built camera manager, it pops-up when I connect the camera, copies the pics, renames them, puts them into their own folder, deletes them from the camera (optional) and voilla, job done.
I did write a bash script for linux once that did the same sort of thing, not much help here tho :p

I use ACDSee. It has many organizing and browsing features, but the best thing is that you can attach audio files to the photo. I use it to record what the grandparents have to say about old photos taken 50-75 years ago. Great for family history buffs.

I did use the Kodak software that came with my DX, but have eventually ditched it & just use the XP installed software - idiot proof and does what I want.
