USB should be fine with any later 2.4 kernel. No issues, in fact probably
less than with serial.

I agree. We switched from BB to Nagios about 6 months ago. Initial setup is
more of a hassle, but end results are IMO well worth it. If you decide to
switch it, setup a mini-environment (for staging or similar) first to learn
the kinks and get a more efficient setup.
