I'm running FreeBSD on my v210 and loving it. Support is pretty good,
although I had to upgrade to the development kernel to stop some weird
hangs (the fix may be in the main kernel now too). I use it as a
server, so I have no idea what the graphics support is like. I'm not
sure what the v240 sounds like, but my little v210 sounds like a jet
taking off, with gentle "vroom-vrooOM-vrooOm" oscillations in the
noise... definitely a closet-dweller.
