I think it would be nice if Focusrite heard back that they're listed
in such a way. I know things like "linux friendly" (the behavior, as
opposed to any branding) influences my hardware buying decisions. In
fact, that was at the top of my list when I bought a portable music
player a few years ago. It had to connect fine over USB for audio
file transfers. It had to support OGG, and it was a bonus to support
FLAC, which it does. It's a great little unit.
