It is quite useful to know information regarding your hardware especially the temperature.
Lm-sensors is the low level driver and service that connects to the motherboard components capable of monitoring temperatures and voltages. Lm-sensors collects the data over the reevant subsystem, an I2C interface.
XSensors is the front-end to display the data collected by Lm-sensors
