I used to use it with no problem. I did have to use a windows box to set up a new account. (The account signup runs off of proprietary windows software). If you call them and ask, they will give you a standard list of information for unsupported applications (linux). This list will include server addresses and everything you will need. The information that they gave me was complete and accurate.
