The most unique aspect seems to be its analytical ability to establish min spinup speed (I think that's what it really is) for each fan under its control and to remember it. This is something we've examined manually in fan tests for years.
I was under the impression that Fax Xpert was Windows software, so how could it control fan spinup speeds?

It is.
You might want to start a fan after you've stopped it... Then spinup voltage matters.
