+1, I still don't have full support for my audigy4, although the Emu10K1 drivers (I think that's what I'm using) do an admirable job. Not sure how an X-Fi would fare though.
I've heard out of box support for 8800s is very good with PClinuxOS, but haven't tried it.
I can vouch for debians stability with them, but a small amount of work is still required of course for install.
