You can have a try. I have not found a time and opportunity to upgrade yet. My system has too many things to backup and protect. It is too risky, especially from a newbie's point of view.
I made that conclusion because, I have 1 yr old China made 64M usb storage key. That works very well. Only the new one doesn't work. Even on my XP laptop, this device is classified as high speed usb. It doesn't work well with XP as well. So I won't surprise if the new hardware doesn't work on linux.
I am going to try it ASAP. After that I think I can have more thing to talk about it.
