[xubuntu] Non-apple Thunderbolt displays and Linux?

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I'm contemplating new monitors. I really like the 27" Apple Thunderbolt displays. Has anyone successfully used these on a non-Mac linux box? I know I can get a Thunderbolt card for a PC, but what I don't know is whether Linux has a driver for it, or how well it works. I typed "thunderbolt" in synaptic and came up with nothing. Alternately, I'd like to know if anyone else is using two or more crazy-high-resolution monitors. And none of the retina display crap, I'm 47 and an apple 27" display is about the limit of my visual acuity even though it's a 27" (Hardware)
