I also have an alix at home running yet (Alix 2d2). It's a great one and I
made an uptime of 500 days with FreeBSD 8.1 the last year :-).

It does not consumes a lot of power ressources neither. However I advise
only network gateway / firewall / wifi access uses point because of the
small RAM available.

It works out of the box with FreeBSD, only ACPI need to be disabled (for a
date issue only).
