  • Works, plug and play with Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic)

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Works out of the box with Ubuntu linux: tested with Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala.

    Cons:

    Annoyingly, the card is shipped in shrink-wrapped plastic which can be a bit hard to peel off without a knife/scissors (which you don't want to be weilding around sensitive electronics). Apart from that, it does feel a little "plasticky" where the USB plugs go, but it works well.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    Cheap and cheerful way of expanding number of USB ports on an old laptop. Card fits flush with the side of the laptop = nothing sticking out that can break, looks like the USB ports were built in from the start! Nice!
