No. We're running few T110 (I & II) under Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu 
server without any problem

One of our T110 running Squeeze has XP, Seven, ChromeOS, Ubuntu server 
or Elastix running in VMs. Note: only XP VM is up all the time, others 
on needs. The goal is to have each OS at disposal without restarting the 
machine to switch to another OS. You need memory (basis can be 1Go per 
VM, 2Go for the server itself if he is not used as desktop, 4Go 
otherwise) and the best processor you can get for your money. The server 
himself is raid1 software based.
