Sorry for the late response - Ospreys (100's and 230's) and yes, on  
only Windows machine node. Although, the question is academic I would  
think - whether they are single node or multi-node with Windows  
unless you were just looking to see if folks are doing it. I have  
both mixed OS and just Windows for some nodes.  In fact, I've  
combined ALL of my nodes (4) into one big node (just to do it) to  
test out how well it worked and to demonstrate that a "node" is a  
relative term... so, i've run an Windows/RedHat/OS X node before as a  

But the answer to the question is single and multi-machine nodes -  
I've been using Osprey cards with Windows XP SP2. Just have to fall  
back to legacy drivers: http://www.viewcast.com/driverdownload2.asp#  
i believe is where they are now.

Hope that helps more!
