... where we can learn from
that for linux there are only a limited number of choices: RME, M-Audio,
Audioscience, Edirol and Tascam; at least the latter two provide USB2.0
compatible soundcards. I've also heard someone say that Firewire
compatible soundcards are not (...will not be...) widely supported by

As for now, I'll put my money to a Centrino compatible machine
(preferrably a IBM Thinkpad T40 if I can put my hands on it) with an
M-Audio Audiophile USB (1.1) card, and anticipating the future since the
Centrino compatible laptops always have USB2.0 connections
