It's becoming less common, but Firewire still isn't too hard to find on
a desktop, at least. I recently replaced my motherboard, and because the
new board lacked Firewire, I had to buy a PCI card to add a Firewire
port to my system. It took only a small amount of digging to find a
cheap one online with a Focusrite-recommended chipset (VIA 6306), and it
only cost me $12.
If I was buying an audio interface today, I'd look more seriously at
some of the USB2 options that have appeared recently that feature some
Linux support, but I'm very happy with my Firewire interface, and I
don't imagine I'll have my trouble keeping it running for years to come.
