Yeah, it worked right out of the box on my Fedora 13 laptop at home.
The image quality during the first half was great, but during the
second half, I did notice some low-res and occasional lock ups.
Still, it was better than trying to bum an invite from a friend or
find a sports bar to watch the game.

It would have been nice if I could have piped my vga port to a
composite feed for my TV, but a tiny bit of research showed that it
would have cost $100 for the necessary box.
