Pros:
I ordered this particularly for use with the Raspberry Pi. I tried it with Linux Debian Wheezy and XBian (XBMC for Raspberry Pi), and it worked in both cases. With Wheezy, I used the Wireless Config tool that comes on the desktop, and it sort of worked out of the box. With XBian, I ssh'ed into the Pi and used network configuration tool, while still connected by ethernet connection. During reboot, I disconnected eth0 and kept this plugged in, and it worked. Wonderful outcome for me!
Cons:
Nothing significant, really.
Other:
Overall, I am very pleased with this product.
Bottomline:
Works as expected and hoped, good value for money. Recommended.
