Yeah, I have a Soundmax in my Ubuntu Linux desktop. I don't do a lot of
gaming on it so the sound card serves my purposes quite nicely. One
thing I can say for the Soundmax AC-97 cards is that they work with
practically every OS I've tried them in. I've tried various Linux
brands, Windows, and even freeBSD with good results. The cards are
pretty good for us open source types.
