It seems that Creative are universally despised amongst the digital audio 
recording/producing crowd. One brand I hear mentioned favorably a lot is 
M-Audio. They don't support Linux, but a lot of their hardware is "real" 
hardware and not Winhardware. In general, USB devices that are really 
standards-compliant, and not larded down with some sort of winfakery, should 
work in Linux.
