Be careful! I got several devices that are white-listed, some do ship
with Linux drivers.
E.g. I owned a FAX white-listed device, but with a shipset that wasn't
listed anywhere and it appeared to be a white-listed device. There was
no way to know that there's a "unkonwn" chipset.
I own three RFID-card readers of the same type that ship with a Linux
driver, but they don't work.
I own a KORG nanoKONTROL (the old one). It's known that old KORG
software versions work with wine, but the new version and old available
version by KORG don't work with wine.
I own an integrated ATI graphics that should work 3D accelerated with
Linux, but it doesn't, hence I bought a NVIDIA, still a PITA.
"OT: I choose a distro that didn't force me to use PulseAudio and an
upgrade today will force me to install it."
Resume: Linux is the best choice for an OS, but be careful. If you
aren't sure, avoid buying hardware.
I bought a RME HDSPe AIO. It's usable, but I miss entire support for
If there's any doubt for the device you wish to buy, don't buy it.
Use Linux only, never use Windows ;), but get a device that REALLY is
known as supported by the Linux distro version you prefer.
