I purchased this item to use the new multi-seat option in Fedora 17. To my delight, it worked great the first time. I plugged in a keyboard, mouse and display to the docking station, powered it on and then plugged it into my newly installed Fedora 17 Toshiba Tecra and it worked great. No need to configure anything in X, Gnome or any command line options. The best test I could think of was to stream audio in each login (Plugable and Laptop). It too, worked great. If want to do multi-seat training or just need another login for your kids or spouse, look no further.

Edit - 01-Jan-2013
I orignaly purchased the "Plugable USB 2.0 Universal Laptop Docking Station with DisplayLink DVI/VGA up to 1920x1080, Audio, Ethernet, and 4 Available High-Speed USB 2.0 Ports" - it is the same device per Plugable. They function exactly the same.

Here is a video demo of the product I made.[...]

This thing is cool. Works great as an additional head for my i5 quad core machine. Of course, I'm running Fedora 18, not Windows. I get two seats of quad core power for the price of one.

Gives me fond memories of the days of VT-420 computing! Timesharing forever! ;)

Would have liked more USB ports, but otherwise does the job just fine. Footprint is better than my previous docking station and the HDMI port is exactly what I needed.
