Works on Linux, just plug it :-) – DigiMicro 200X Zooming USB Digital Microscope Reviews

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

Pros:
I used it on GNU/Linux Ubuntu and it works perfectly. No need to install drivers, just plug it to USB port and you are ready to go :-) It appears as a Video For Linux (V4L) device, so you can use any program that plays and records video from V4L :-)
Cons:
Making zoom seems a bit difficult, I think it could be better.
Other:
It have auto light, although that can be post processed in software. I think it works great and in future would be nice to have a better image quality for the same price.
Bottomline:
.
