I have several and I have used them on several machines, so IBM 3174 screen controller, IBM Pentium Server and Atari ST but not DEC, with the FlashFloppy software mentioned elsewhere.
I programmed the Gotek on a Windows machine but there are instructions for Linux.
It appears it supports RX50 but as I said I haven't tried it.
It doesn't matter which version (720 or 1.44) once programmed with Flash Floppy it can be either drive.
