I ran out and got this card, and it was as easy of an install as possible -- turn off the power, open the case, pop the card in, screw it in, close, reboot. OS X 10.2.6+ & 10.3 recognize this card out of the box from my experience. I haven't had any problems with this card at all since the day I bought it, and haven't given it much thought. I can't vouch for its performance in OS 9, however, since I don't boot into 9.
The NEC controller chip Adaptec uses on this PCI card works fine under Linux 2.6.6. Just be sure to enable both the ECHI *and* OCHI USB host drivers in the kernel. The OCHI drivers are used when USB 1.1 devices are inserted into this 2.0 card. I didn't realize this initially and thought there was something wrong with the card when I plugged in a 1.1 device and nothing happened. And, incidentally, if your motherboard has any built-in 1.1 ports you'll probably need to include the UHCI driver as well since Intel/VIA chipsets generally use this older USB controller standard.
Linux 2.6.x is recommended for USB 2.0, but a recent 2.4.x kernel might also work if you're only trying to use USB mass storage devices.
