On the desktop, linux consumes 100 times less energy than windows and 5 times less than MacOS.
Gentoo consumes 1000 times less energy than Ubuntu.


I'd just LOVE to hear the maths behind that claim. I mean, if a Windows PC consumes e.g. 300W while powered on, it would only consume 3W when running generic Linux, and 0,003W when running Gentoo...

Or in other words: you have no idea what you're saying.
