Works for Ubuntu 10.x

VANTEC 6-Port SATA II 150 PCI Host Card Model UGT-ST310R

Pros: Took a gamble to see if this would work in my Linux box: paid off. Worked without any effort other than the physical installation. Since there were no comments about it working in linux, I wanted to make sure one existed for future people.

Cons: Unknown in any other *nix distros.

Works great on ubuntu

Pros: Ubuntu picks it up just fine. I get 1gbit prescribed speeds. It has netboot setup which I'll probably never really use.

Cons: None

Pros: Remarkably easy to setup. All the cables are color coded at the end. Doesn't matter which speakers are where since they're all the same, but they're labeled anyways. Controls are easy to use, but Sat/TV are tricky because they both use the same HDMI input and then switches audio based on something. Sound is great for PS3 and Sat through HDMI. I've hooked a computer up to it as well and it's golden.

Cons: The remote's "ability to control other elements" seems limited to just Sony TV's (I have a panasonic). It's not a learning remote at all.

Overall Review: For my first mostly real HTS, I'm really impressed with it. I'm going to be getting a universal remote to eliminate the 3.5 I'm using now. The sub is seems seriously powerful for non-powered and the sound is simply great compared to my last janky setup. Audiophiles probably won't see this as anything great, but for a simple setup attached to multiple digital devices, it's pretty great for the price.
