I used them alot myself and it can be a pain (I even have an Atheros 
chipset in the laptop and RT2500 in both my brothers desktop and his 
girlfriends laptop - both of which I'm trying to get to move to Linux!)

However, the big bonus I can see from that one is the inclusion of WPA 
within the kernel itself, not a separate WPA user-space implementation 
which has always made it a pain to work with, esp when you're moving 
between wireless networks!
