Aslo works great in Linux – Driver-free Universal USB IR Media Remote Controller for PC (2*AAA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Works OOB with Ubuntu 8.04, just plug in the usb receiver and off you go. The email, web page, close, volume & mouse all work without installing any driver. Not tried all the functions but only wanted it for a media center unit.
Cons:
No batteries supplied ;-(
Quite a large remote, not a problem for me though!
Other:
I was dubious about whether I would have to play with LIRC to get it working but it really is plug & play on Linux.. Probably not if you run a non X session though...
Bottomline:
Buy one!
