Also, is 10ms really so bad? I guess it depends what you are using it
for, but 10ms from pressing a keyboard to getting a note out is not so
bad at all - within the realms of analogue organ response times, I
think.. If you need to feed audio in and have near-zero latency, that
is a different matter..
For my live setup (virtual synth-rack) I am planning to rely on the
internal sound - at least in initial (rehearsal) tests.. Not too
worried as long as latency is <25ms and xrun-free.

Latency in 1.1 vs usb 2 shouldn't be significantly different as I
understand it. usb 2 just allows higher bandwidth - so more channels
or 24bit vs 16bit. Just depends on whether the interface is properly
supported in linux.

Yes - I just got a scarlett 2i4 and heartily recommend it - although
haven't stress-tested it much yet. Quality seems very good!
Be careful though - not all usb2 devices are supported in linux..
Re: firewire - there was some discussion here a year or so back that
it might be being slowly discontinued - fewer laptops having as
standard etc, and most consumer interfaces moving to usb2.
