ATA support is the one potential issue. I'm currently netbooting my
T2000 because of continued MPT crankiness. I've been told I can get
access to T1000s for testing purposes so I'll test it out in the near
future. I already know of one other FreeBSD developer who has
convinced his employer to pick one up.
