I bought a usb dongle which I intend to use in Ubuntu 10.04. The problem is I haven't been able to find any Linux drivers for it which has prompted me to find another solution: Virtualbox.
I intend to run Windows XP as guest and plug in the dongle which will run inside Windows easily. The challenge for me is in making sure Ubuntu gets the connection too and I do all my web development stuff inside Linux. Windows has to be just a gateway.
