I have been using a MOTU 828mkII under Windows and love it to death. 
All those ins and outs are great.  ~2.3ms latency on my 2.4GHz laptop. 
So sad that it doesn't work under Linux.

I was thinking of switching to an RME Multiface, too.  The only bummer 
there is no hi-z guitar level inputs, or mic pres on those boxes.  I'm 
sure the ones on the 828mkII are only so-so, but seeing as I don't have 
any stand alone mic pres, it would be a big loss for me.
