No.  The increase in rotational speed is fairly seemless to the OS.  
Stability/reliablity should be OS independant unlike CPU overclocking or 
use of PAE (memory above 4 Gigs) where problems can occur on specific 
OS'es.  Performance effects may differ slightly based on the file system 
implimentation and the applications used.
