Can't be all that bad if Linus uses it ;)
Seriously, I've used one before and as far as I know the server it is in
is still going strong 4 years later. It comes in all sorts of different
models, some are the basic 10/100 and others have nifty SNMP management
stuff built in. Obviously the price increases by leaps & bounds the
more options you get.
Another fairly decent card is the DE-530 which you can get from Page
Data in Fyshwyck for about the same price DE500's (tulip) were. I've
never had problems with any D-Link card purchased from them. It uses
the via-rhine driver iirc.
