linux + PC efficency
Hello , I read year or more ago that in linux if you have say p4 2.66 ghz and all you are doing is listening to songs then linux would automatically decrease the system's speed , busspeed etc coz its useless + it increases hardware efficency , they dont become uselessly hot and thus also decreases hardware's wear n tear I dont claim it was exactly as i said ... so i just wanna comform sorta thing happens or not .... if yeah then to what extent .... i mean really it does that or is it limited to certain things only.???????
on the other hand what abt microsoft windows ? does it do this ..... if yeah whats its extent of conserving resources?
