Well, when I wanted to buy a sound card 2/3 years ago I just searched
"Linux YYYY soundcard X-in X-out X-kHz X-bits"
and this gives me choices, without advertising....
Then PPL on Ardour gives their advice and I'm really happy with the card !!!

Ah, si chaque grain de sable choisissait d'apporter sa goutte d'eau, hein ?
