I'm using a UMC202HD USB interface with Linux, and it works fine.
I can use it with ALSA and JACK with no problems.
I'd just advise to avoid connecting the interface through a USB hub with a Wacom tablet connected to the same hub too. My UMC202HD produces quiet beating sounds on all outputs (monitors+headphones) if a Bamboo tablet is connected to the same hub - better use a dedicated USB port for the interface
I can't speak on a ton of options but I do know the Focusrite Scarlett lineup works and the Steinberg UR22 worked for me as well. I'd say almost everyone of the best audio interfaces out there are going to work as long as they follow the standard USB and Firewire protocols. Whether their included monitor mixing software works is a different issue, but the driver communication should be fine.
