I've used them under both Windows 95 and Linux.  An ISP I once worked for
was attempting to use diskless Linux boxes as routers for a wireless
network that never got off the ground, and I did all the Linux
work.  They're okay, but on the slow side - the WaveLAN is a much
better choice.

IIRC Proxim never officially released Linux drivers - they were done by a
Proxim employee on his own time, and binary-only.  Proxim themselves (of
course) supplied drivers for various OSes with the cards.
