Yes, me (have only Windows at work). I got a bluescreen once, but it never
happened again... But somehow I can't get a internet connection (network
works only between FR and Host), so I created a debian VMWare, and pass the
USB device to the VMWare. Then I enable NAT network for the VMWare and
enable USB networking _IN_ the VmWare. This works pretty well :) Network is
now "WAN->Windows->VMwareDebian->Freerunner".
