What does activation have to do with the OS?  From what I understand, you
put the CC in the device and call Comcast with the pairing IDs for the CC
and device.  Also, none of the device manufacturers require Windows so there
should be no OS requirement.  That said, since I have never done this, I am
certainly no authority.  What troubles did you have in Windows?
