I've been seeing it more in Ubuntu based systems than in Fedora ones.  

(Although someone commented that installing backports on Jaunty helped a
great deal, which I also found to be the case.)

Fedora's been, more or less, reliable for me with it.  While I've gotten
dropped connections from time to time, I have been able to do big yum
update connections with it.  

However, haven't used it in a week or so, so it's quite possible that
it's changed recently.  

Still, *generally* speaking, F11 has given me about the best out of the
box connection with an N wireless card.  (I don't have Windows on the
machine, so can't comment on how it does compared to MS.)
