I've got all of those working under Linux on my Audiophile 2496.  ;-)

To be fair, I haven't used the Midi a great deal because I've got an M-Audio 
Midisport 8x8 that is also working great now, but initial experimentation 
with the Audiophile showed that the Midi was working.  As far as I can tell, 
everything works fine on the Audiophile.

My main problem is that I can't find a way to get Envy24Control to load my 
default settings each time, and alsactl doesn't seem to want to do it either, 
so every time I want to use the sound card I have to manually load 
Envy24Control and select my default setting - only takes a few seconds 
though, so it's not much hassle.  (It's just a bit annoying, because I can't 
find a way to automate it - Envy24Control doesn't seem to have any command 
line parameters!)

Also, I'm still working on getting Audacity to record from the Audiophile, so 
at the moment I just use arecord from a shell, which works well enough for my 
purposes that I haven't really spent much time trying to fix Audacity.

But, other than that, everything is working, and it's a great card too - 
highly recommended!

I'd be happy to help out by trying to remember what I did to get it working, 
if you get stuck.  :-)
