Works out of the box with Ubuntu 8.10 although only at USB1 speed. Not had much chance to see if there are any Linux USB2 drivers for it yet as it's not a problem for me (just using it for connecting a printer etc).
It does have a power input so an external supply is probably needed to power up some "self powered" usb peripherals (not flash memory sticks, they work fine).
What's more every time I boot even though the card is not plugged in to my computer, it tries to instal the hardware and comes up with errors again. I tried going to system hardware and uninstalling/removing it but that doesn't work!! Like a previous review wrote... YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
It's designed for older systems like windows ME so I'm assuming that the other reviewers who have had no problem have older systems.
I'm very disappointed as I really needed some extra USB ports on my laptop. Going to have to search for another one now......
I am not impressed with the product and it only works when it wants.
The only issue is that I can't now shutdown Windows from the Start menu. I have to use the switch on the laptop instead, which is no inconvenience but I just thought I'd mention it.
