Yes, it works no matter which operating system you use — Windows, Linux or macOS. Note however, that on Windows you will likely run into regularly reoccurring problems with the tablet driver settings necessitating resetting the driver’s settings regularly. Happens to me about once a month; this is not a bug in Krita, just something broken in Wacom’s drivers.

Then there are driver updates that break everything, not just for Krita, but randomly for other applications as well.

Then there are problems with multi-monitor setups that take fiddling to fix.

In general, weirdly enough and maybe surprisingly, Wacom tablets tend to work best, with the least amount of fuss on Linux.
