For windows I just needed to install the 'SiLabs CP2012' drivers and just checked what COM port to fully use it in Putty. If it was this or one of the cheaper ones (Different chipset) I'd go with this. Here is the color code for the 4 cables:
red = power
black = ground
white = RX
green = TX
It does support bidirectional serial, but I rarely use it for that. I just use it for serial debug output to my PC.
I tested it with OSX, Windows 10 and Raspberry Pi.
With a few added components I'm able to control a wheel chair motor controller.
Very happy with the product.
The picture of the cable in the item description is outdated. The actual cable has a violet USB body, which is the newer version of the adafruit cable that has the PL2303TA chip and is (according to both adafruit and prolific's websites) Windows 8 compatible. The older cable pictured in the item description has a black USB body and contained the PL2303HX which does not have a Windows 8 driver.

I connected it up, verified that /dev/ttyUSB0 was there - great!
Wire up the TX and RX pins according to adafruit website, connect up the ground cable. Ignore the power cable as instructed.
Kernel shows this:
[27741.259124] cp210x ttyUSB0: failed set request 0x12 status: -19
[27741.259126] cp210x ttyUSB0: failed set request 0x0 status: -19
[27741.259274] cp210x ttyUSB0: cp210x converter now disconnected from ttyUSB0
[27741.259281] cp210x 2-2.2:1.0: device disconnected
The adapter feels incredible hot, i unplug and plug it back in.
Nothing. No longer detected. Fried itself! Worthless product.
Il faut soit-dit-en-passant bien lire la notice et ne brancher la 4ème broche que si on compte alimenter le Pi uniquement par ce biais. (J'imagine que c'est une faute qui pourrait causer des dégâts si on y prête pas attention.)
