comment What is Gnome / KDE etc?
The difficult part of understanding the different components of a Linux system versus Windows is that Windows rolls everything up into a ball and gives you the ball as a whole (filesystem, kernel, console, gui, applications, servies, etc...). Linux gives you alternative choices for nearly everything. It's like comparing a toy boat to a lego boat. The toy boat you're stuck with as it comes, the lego boat you can rip apart, extend, shrink, or swap out tons of pieces.

Aww!!! but what's the program that CSI uses?!?! lol, jk... I know there's no silver bullet, but have seen some proof-of-concept apps and was hoping the techniques had trickled down to some open-source utilities

I think he's hoping that turning off the fans will keep the heat in the box rather than spreading it throughout. :-S strange question, but interesting to think about

comment Hard drive won't initialize, spins up, makes 2 clicks, and spins up again
Drive brand-loyalty is always funny. Personally I won't touch Maxtor after having a half-dozen fail in a month (between me and friends); I've had great luck with WD, a couple have arrived DOA but the ones that have arrived working are still working (knock on wood).
