Great for Linux
Pros: Works well under LInux for 3 monitors. Using Ubuntu 12.10.
Cons: None, need correct adapters/drives in Linux though. See other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: If you're using the two DVI ports and your third monitor will be using DVI as well via the display port port, you must use an active adapter. Otherwise only two monitors will function - initially tried with a passive adapter and it would not work.

Great 3-monitor solution
Pros: I bought this card specifically because it has two DVI and one mini-displayport. I drive two 24" Dell Ultrasharps and one 24" Apple Cinema Display. Running Ubuntu 12.04, I have one huge desktop with 3D acceleration working fine. This is no gaming card, but it's plenty fast for business. Fanless card is also silent and worry-free. I was nervous about going with a Radeon in Linux, but it runs perfectly. In fact, it's more stable than the Nvidia I replaced it with.
Cons: None. If you want 3 monitors for business and one needs mini-displayport, this is the perfect solution.
Other Thoughts: This card was cheaper than buying an adaptor to go from DVI to MDP. If you want to use an Apple monitor on a PC, this is a good solution.
