I'm using FreeBSD 5.2.1 on my Thinkpad X21. The only thing I've trouble
with is acpi. So I'm using APM which works sufficiently for me
(suspending when closing the display, etc. I have no problems with
sound, all hardware components are recognised (even the WinModem is
supported by the lt.. port but I don't bother as I don't need it).

Mostly I do allday-work with the laptop, email, browsing the internet,
openoffice, connecting to citrix, administering remote machines,
networking tasks, etc.

There's nothing I miss with FreeBSD but that's only my point. Other
users may have other needs.
