That's more accurate than I like, but some of the devices do work on Linux 
and/or FreeBSD.

Devices that are simple enough to work over RS-232 are usually equally simple 
on USB.  Yes, it's messy if they don't release documentation.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
