Anyone have experiences with running Ubuntu on T61? Thanks.
Just running Unity should not cause overheating. In fact, all thinkpads (in my experience) should be able to run Prime95 or Furmark (stress testing programs) without overheating or shutting down. 90C is way too high for idle, and normal temps are usually ~45 if everything is working properly with minimal dust clogging the fan.

Most of these units should be comfortable to have on your lap at idle, when I encountered one which didn't, a repasting of AS5 worked alot better than I thought.
Ubuntu shouldn't have a problem, I haven't encountered a problem with Linux other then a driver hiccup.
