One member of our community recently got one of these running on Linux. The stock 1010LT comes with Windows (and Mac) drivers. So if you have a few scanners lying around and want to feed a bunch of individual feeds, this is probably the way to go, unless you have a bunch of old PCs. This option may be cheaper in the long run, though, and is better on energy conservation.
It's definitely expensive as sound cards go...but not for professional sound cards:http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/Delta1010LT-main.html
Of course, you can also use multiple sound cards in one computer, but that can be tedious if you run into sound driver conflicts. It can be hit or miss.
