... mmmm a USB2 audio device is not exactly linux friendly.

Below is a copy/paste of the requirement page. If I were interested in a USB-2 audio device, I would bring a linux laptop to a retailer's store and test the beast on the spot before purchasing it.



Windows XP (32-bit) with SP2**
DirectX 9.0c (included in XP)
USB 2.0 port
Windows Vista (32-bit versions) / Windows Vista SP2 (32Bit , 64 Bit) / Win7 (32Bit , 64 Bit)
1.6 GHz processor (CPU may be higher for laptops)
512 MB RAM*
* Windows Vista Home Premium, Business and Ultimate require 1 GB RAM.
** Home and Professional Edition only. Windows Media Center Edition is not supported.
*** Please check the minimum system requirements of your DAW software as they may be higher.

Minimum System Requirements (Mac)
Mac OS X 10.3.9
USB 2.0 port
512 MB RAM
