Ok, I am currently running ubuntu_64 - and it STILL generates a lot of heat.


I thought it might be the wireless, so I kept it off (broadcom anyway -
ndiswrapper blah blah)
it is still cooking hot...

I wonder if it has to do with being 64 bit - and now its finally firing the
processor on all cylinders - the windows xp media center version I had was
only 32 bit...   I'm grabbing a 32 bit of FC6 right now to see if that may
alleviate any issues.

I'd hate to outgrade to VISTA ...
