Dear Ladies and Gentlemen at TASCAM,<BR>
Thank you for your reply. I guess I (and a couple of others) will probably be satisfied with other (linux friendly ) vendors (e.g ECHO Audio).<BR>

I'm deciding whether to buy the US-1800. Since I run Linux (Ubuntu) with jack and ardour (<A HREF="http://www.ardour.org">www.ardour.org</A> ), I need to know if the device is USB 2.0 audio class compliant or if there are plans for a dedicated driver. Or at least plans to publish sufficient information to the linux audio developers (linuxaudio.org). If nothing is planned in that direction, I will switch to the Firewire solutions from Focusrite, since Focusrite actively supports the linux audio developers! It's not that much work to disclose some information. And you'll have some 500+ linux musicians BUYING YOUR PRODUCTS! Afterall, your a hardware vendor, not a software vendor.
If you have any additional questions, please visit the TASCAM support
