Summary: "Works" in Debian GNU/Linux (jessie) after installing firmware-realtek. And by "works", I mean you can associate with an AP and send some bits, and you will get the initial impression of working. What you won't immediately notice, however, is that performance is extraordinarily flaky.
Pros: Yes, it gives you 300 mbps if you have the right access point. The price is moderate.
Cons: Connection is sometimes somehow unstable; a reconnection attempt happens once in a few days, sometimes taking half a minute to regain the connection. Hopefully it's a driver issue which will be ironed out.
Summary: Don't buy. A glass of water is a much cheaper way to ruin a PC.
Pros: It was fairly cheap
Cons: Well that's easy - I had it installed for about 20 minutes before it shorted out my motherboard. So, if you're willing to risk that, then this is a great product. Otherwise avoid as though it were made of anthrax.

Pros: I have a desktop with 3 HDDs, Win7 on one, Win XP on a second, and Ubuntu on the last. I had purchased a refurbished Netgear wifi adapter (locally) and it worked fine with Windows, but didn't work with Linux. After reading through numerous threads on the Ubuntu Forum, I decided that it would be b...
Cons: Haven't found anything at all that I don't like with this adapter.
