It appears some versions of the V100 may use the Broadcom 4312 wireless controller rather than the Intel 3945 tested here. If anybody can supply information about this that would be great. It would likely need the ndiswrapper module so it would be harder to use than the Intel 3945.
There were no problems in getting the Lenovo 3000 V100 working when used with an up to date Linux distribution.
