     47The 'officially supported' label is only given to devices that fullfil the 
     48following: 
    4849* at least one of the developers has the device 
    4950* the vendor provides development support (access to information)

    5253Through reverse-engineering the following devices will also work: 
    53 * MotU traveller 
    54 * MotU 828mkII 
    55 Note: the support for these devices is based on a significant reverse engineering effort. 
    56 This means that the developers had no support of the device vendor, and this of course 
    57 limits the extent as to which problems can be solved. You have been warned. Please do not 
    58 buy devices for which support is based upon reverse engineering, nor from vendors that are 
    59 Linux-hostile (e.g. MotU). Value the support that some vendors provide and buy their stuff. 
    60 Check ffado.org for details. It can't be said enough: currently it is a stupid move to buy 
    61 a MotU device if you intend to use Linux.

     55* MOTU 828mkII

    6365The driver is written to provide generic support for all devices it might be 
    64 able to handle. This means that most devices based on the BridgeCo BeBoB or the 
    65 ECHO FireWorks platform will work, at least to a certain extent.
