Nope, mostly because I don't live in philly, and they haven't extended
their coverage far enough into the boondocks yet.

Clear said linux/mac support 3 months from now, 5 months ago.

See this post about how the clear modem is a rebranded modem by Quanta

There's a driver available for OS X from that page

Here's a thread about getting it to work with Linux. there's
apparently a kernel module, which you have to connect to their windows

Keep in mind there's also a wimax wifi router available, which might
