http://unix.stackexchange.com – I don't understand it. Almost every 10th or 20th question is about fan or overheating or that the fan is too loud and the speed too big etc. And these questions are not only about laptops but often about desktop Linux systems. Why there are so many problems with fans in the Linux world? Why is it so hard to set the right fan speed in Linux distributions or during the install process? (HowTos)
