Do USB switches need special treatment on linux?


I have one linux pc and one XP pc. I want to use the same USB mouse and keyboard on both. I'm looking at USB switches, but most of them have "Windows or Mac" as requirements (and say nothing about linux). Will they work on my linux machine?

btw, I'm running FC4.

It's a logitech MX Duo (mouse: MX700, keyboard: Logitech cordless). They're both connected to my pc using one usb cable. They function with or without the logitech software on my pc.
Why does it matter (not that I doubt that it does). I mean, why is the OS even aware of the switch?
