And even if you only need the 2 channels USB1 can provide easily you
wont find any USB1-Device on the shelf. The vendors build everything in
USB2 - just because it is there and they don not want to discuss
consumer-questions like "What?! USB1 only - and I shall pay more then 20
for such an antique piece of equipment?".

So these big beasts seem to be the only alternative...

I can only hope, that the distributors wake up and put some of their
big-company-weight (and errrmm maybe some of their money?) into that.

But they seem to be totally unaware of something like a need for
pro-audio-support for Linux. - What a misconception! Every OS out there
that qualifies as "full grown" offers support for everything any user
today does on a PC. MS and Apple do not ignore audio-needs just because
audio-producers are only a small percentage of the userbase.

The SuseAG showed some insight on this as they put the alsa-people on
their payroll and set up a certified-for-linux programme for
multimedia-devices that made Linux visible to companies like Terratec.
As a result we now have perfect support for envy24-cards.
But NOVELL cut these efforts. And other distributors, that proudly claim
"We love the desktop-user!"? They do not much more than to gracefully
accept a halfhearted integration of the unpaid efforts of free devs in
the backyards of their repos...

I really wonder what can be done to change this...
