comment How can I see how many processor cores are working?
I feel it's important to note that Windows wasn't only using one core. The entry in MSConfig is talking about how many cores it should use in the booting process, and I'm fairly sure it's only useful to limit that number. I see no reason why it wouldn't use all of them by default.

comment Is running temperature considered when a machine is added to the 'Ubuntu certified' list?
@psusi; Of course, to think such a thing would be insanity itself - I'm talking two seperate tools giving temperatures that have the same offsets to each other but different temperatures, that rise and fall by the same amount. I have no doubt that most of the time they are accurate, but by no means are they infallible.

@psusi; I've seen wildly differing temperature claims intra-OS, never mind between two OS', I have a lot of trouble trusting it completely. If temperature is ever an issue I'd want to verify it properly, but often all you need to know is the delta and that should be accurate.

The only way to get a truly accurate temperature reading is with an external device - temperature monitors are only assured for deltas.
