It couldn't hurt to ask the specific vendor(s) you're interested in
about win* compatibility or at least detailed hardware lists.
>From what I've seen, VA and Penguin do use pretty common hardware
(they're not really big enough to do a lot of custom stuff), which would
allow you to download drivers from the web if they're not provided.
OTOH, the existence of a driver doesn't mean it'll necessarily work,
especially with windows..
