Alot of new hardware is USB. When it works correctly, its a breeze to setup.
Just plug the thing in.
I don't use any USB devices on my linux boxes, but have some for windows, 
and they seem to function within parameters.
Saying don't buy anything USB is like saying don't buy anything thats 
plug-n-pray, or don't buy serial mice, or don't buy Fords.
Like anything, hardware sometimes takes a little coaching.
