Can anyone recommend a good digital audio interface for music recording?

I would like something with at least 8 inputs, though I'm also interested in anything cheap even if it has fewer than that.

Mine is a PCI card, but that seems to be old tech now -- and it would be nice to have something that could work over USB, for use with a laptop.

I'll want to use it with Linux, but at this point I'll take recommendations for anything even if you don't know whether there are Linux drivers; I'll do the research and/or take the risks.

Please note: I am NOT anti-police, nor anti-government. The point is this: if do not restrain themselves, do not obey the law of the land, do not hold themselves accountable, then this is what the world sees. "U.S. Security forces hunt down journalists..."

There are a lot of people who can't let go of misinformation even after it's revealed that their previous information was incorrect. This is why it's so important that factual news be repeated more often than lies. A lie often repeated becomes the reality people live. A society cannot abide with untruths driving policy.
