Coolest Mathematica trick you'll see this month guaranteed

I use Linux on my machines and enjoy helping other Archlinux users in 
the online forums.  A fellow Arch user was having issues with 
Mathematica 7.  He was plotting a 3D parametric equation and 
experiencing a sustained high processor load on this laptop; only 
killing the kernel would allow the CPU to idle down.  He found that the 
laptop's accelerometer kernel driver was eating nearly 30% of the CPU 
time....  You'll just have to read the forum to see the rest!

Can any Windows or Mac users duplicate this?  Or is this a Linux-only 
"feature"?  Or maybe this is well-known and I'm just late in finding out?
