I can just guess, and my best guess would be that it is not. One site that sells
them have them listed as "Condition	New, old stock"

I can't find much other sides selling them either.

Perhaps it is just not worth the work to write a working driver for it. If
nobody is interested I'm fine with dumping it on ebay or the electronic garbage
collection next time.

I just remembered that I wanted to write a driver for it a long time already and
decided that it will not happen. At least not from my side.
