Well, the math is really simple.
A linux desktop consumes roughly the same amount of energy as a windows desktop. There are 100 times more windows desktops than linux desktops. Therefore windows consumes 100 times more power than linux on the desktop.
The same math applies when comparing gentoo to ubuntu.
I thought you would get it.
