I also don't have issue with my hardware (sound card, printer, scanner,
camera, ...), be it brand new or second hand.

I chose to move to usb2 class compliant 3 years ago to avoid issues with
alsa-firmware (I was fed up reporting bugs or having to find one working
device before buying...). For pure audio work, it is great. For midi, I
have to check but I remember playing at 3ms with my Akai pad and Hydrogen,
while recording on Ardour. And 3ms is something we can play: old digital
synth ran around 8ms, and on stage, when you are many meters away from your
amp you have more than 10ms in some cases. What is great with usb2 class
compliant audio devices, is that any device working with Apple iPad will
work out of the box with Linux.

So maybe, what we need is to build a small database of recommended and
tested devices. So people can be sure that it is working well on Ubuntu
Studio. It means also avoiding products with different revisions (if we can
not test all revisions), that kind of things.

Do you think we can do that on Ubuntu Studio website ? or do we need to
create another website ? or Ubuntu wiki, but not sure that a lot of people
will actually read it ? And please, I know alsa-project and ffado, this is
not a great help for beginners with Linux.

Maybe we should try to contact Canonical and see if they could create a
certifying program for multimedia hardware ?
