I have a zoom H2, it is 100% compatible with Linux.

I can use it as a USB sound card, but only with two of its microphones
at a time, and a maximum sampling rate of 48k (I think these are also
limitations under any other OS, because of USB bus speed).

I have found it more useful to record using the H2 alone, then grab
the files off of it as if it were a flash drive.
