I'm about to buy a samsung USB G2 5ooGB, or a western digital 500GB USB Essential
In their specs, none of them say they work on linux. I'm almost sure they do work fine, just like my 4 GB pen drive
But I'd like to be sure before buying any of them.
By working fine I mean being able to format, read, and write them just like I do with my 4GB pen drive (I format them usgin palimpsest, and mount, read, and write to them just like with any other drive, without requiring any custom software and / or driver and / or compiling my own kernel or anything like that)
