Every pro I know prints from Jpegs.

I say shoot both, that way you can quickly flag everything that looks good right out of camera and use the Jpegs, then make alternations to the RAW files for ones that need help.

My 7D will save both Jpegs and RAW's at the same time. I don't know if that's how it is for everyone elses cameras.

One thing to keep in mind: Most RAW formats embed a preview jpeg, and with the wide range of software the deals with RAW it makes little sense to shoot RAW+Jpeg in most cases, unless you know you will want to do much of anything with them with limited access to processing power and storage.

Jpegs are a lossy processed image. That is the program reads through the data, finds stuff that is 'similar' or falls close to a set pattern, and then uses less data to store it. However when it comes to reading it again you will no longer get back what was actually put in. In most cases this is fine and a human is hard pressed to notice any difference. However, it is very easy for elements of fine detail to be destroyed, especially in images with heavy shadow. (I need to redo my facebook profile photo, as it was shot as an ultra low key photo with rather rich detail in the shadow... But facebook's processing combined with Lightroom's jpeg compression method to render all the large shadow fields as small squares that look like dark digital camouflage...)

So the big problem with jpegs becomes that you often lose control. And this can be compounded when working with many bulk printers that market to the home user segment, as they will often automatically process stuff with their own 'secret sauce' to give you an image that really pops and looks cool. Which works great when it is used on your average snapshot from a point and shoot, but can really fall flat on its face when you throw something more complex at it.

pretty much any DSLR from the past 10 years can do this. I know my XTi does it but it seems rather pointless as any photo I'm going to post or print I usually do some PP tweaks that can't be performed in camera anyways.

I figured they would. The reason it's handy is for when you are browsing thumbnails, JPEG's load faster. That is the only reason I use it sometimes.

This. With high capacity SD cards being able to had for relatively little cost shooting in JPEG seems like a waste to me. I find that no shots are 100% perfect SOOC there's always something you're not quite happy with and RAW allows you far more power to tweak and make a 95% good photo into 100% awesome.

Only exception to this would be if you're shooting sports or other fast action then shooting in JPEG can save your life since the camera will have longer time before it slows down due to the buffer being full. Shooting in RAW most cameras slow down after a few second JPEG can extend this by quite a bit.

I shoot Raw 100% of the time now. I shoot continuously rarely if ever.

I'll set my camera to shoot bracketed in high continuous if the scene's dynamic range is really high. Like shooting indoors with a window in the room, or an outdoor scene where part of it is in the shade.
