I've noticed that when booting, right around the time the kernel first
accesses my disks the fan speed jumps a bit. It's not full-on vacuum
cleaner howling, just a bit noisier.
I've only got the one machine so I can't do A/B comparisons, but it
seems to be quieter when running OSX.
Is linux using the same fan speed parameters, or are we maybe a bit
