[News] Linux Runs on 5 Watts

Fit PC runs Linux and draws only 5W of power

,----[ Quote ]
| There are power efficient computers and then there are power efficient 
| computers.  Enter the Fit PC, a small, self-contained, fanless computer that 
| draws 3W to 5W when it is on.  


Linux vs. Windows Power Usage

,----[ Quote ]
| For these tests we hadn't used the Lenovo ThinkPad R52 notebook again, but 
| had turned to an older hardware configuration.  



Windows, Linux vie for honours

| Projects include the "tickles kernel" which enables the processor to sleep 
| between tasks and better power management to USB peripherals.

| That lightness had also allowed Linux to become a strong player in the 
| embedded market, where energy efficiency was critical to success, Mr King 
| said.  


Linux, Windows duke it out over energy efficiency

| Linux appears to have an advantage at the moment: Companies are becoming 
| increasingly open to adopting the platform both in the server room and on the 
| desktop. Big-name vendors like IBM, HP, and Novell are giving the penguin a 
| push in the datacenter, framing it as a flexible and energy-efficient 
| platform. The fact that Linux offers greater virtualization opportunities 
| than Windows (a sentiment recently expressed by the VMWare CTO Mendel 
| Rosenblum) only strengthens the platform's green standing.      


GNU/Linux is the most power-efficient OS on Intel hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| According to a keynote given at OSCON, Intel's PowerTOP application has 
| allowed developers to get a close-up view of what is sucking power in a 
| GNU/Linux system. Apparently they've gotten so much feedback and patches that 
| they've been able to extend battery life by an hour since the first release, 
| making GNU/Linux the best OS for power saving.    


Report: Linux, open source greener than Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| A new report from the U.K. Office of Government Commerce about Open
| Source Software Trials in Government, has found that servers running
| Linux could combat the rising problem of e-waste because they last
| up to twice as long as machines running Windows.
