I have an RME Hammerfall/Multiface-II setup (8 analog ins, 8 analog can
always connect something from Apogee to the digital ins if you want some
additional channels with converters that are even better yet (and if you
can afford stuff from Apogee!).

Well, Apple invented it, but it works anywhere. The other poster who
said that it matters a lot what kind of firewire host you've got is
right. I never experienced problem free firewire (for digital video
capture) with the firewire on my motherboard, nor with a Western Digital
firewire card. Finally, I got a 3-port card from SIIG, and it works
beautifully with everything. That might be a place to start if you want
to go with Linux audio via firewire, which uses the FFADO driver.

Just my opinion, but to me, Keytronic makes the best keyboards. They
resemble the old no-nonsense IBM server keyboards, but without the
obnoxious audible click. (They still feel good though.)

Don't know why Linux wouldn't support a PS/2 mouse. Then again, I've
avoided them every since USB mice became available just for the simple
reason that a USB mouse won't use an IRQ for itself, but a PS/2 mouse
always will use IRQ12. Most BIOS's these days will let you free IRQ12
if you're not using the PS/2 mouse port, and that sounds good to me.
