FTDI work very well under windows or linux. Once you add the
appropriate driver (via the linux kernel) you can boot
either winblows or linux and use the 9pin-serial-to-usb
as you like with either OS.
These sorts of products are build upon various chipsets from
different vendors, but, there are standards so as long as
a linux driver exists for the chipset that is used in your
product, it should work reliably and consistently, under
linux or winblows.....
