    Question Recommend me a USB bluetooth device that works in Linux

    I would like to use Bluetooth on my Acer Aspire One, so it needs to be USB. I wondered if anyone had a recommendation. It doesn't have to be fancy. Just needs to work in Ubuntu. I heard IOGear GBU421 works but I'm up for other suggestions.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your suggestions. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find them all from my online retailer but I did find Sublime Porte's suggestion cheap.

    Thank you!
