Can Ubuntu Linux Consume Less Power Than Windows?

ngileadi Re:Can it crash less often than Windows? (225 comments)

I don't know how this is relevant to the discussion, but you may want a blank screensaver to automatically lock your computer when you're away.

Sorry if I missed some sarcasm there.

Can Ubuntu Linux Consume Less Power Than Windows?

Well, I don't know what problem spiffmastercow had, but this bug has been around since the launch of 11.04, and crashes my laptop on a regular basis.

The cap mentioned in the article is 250Gbit, not 250GB. 31GB is about 20 hours of HD video.

A New Way To Produce Hydrogen

ngileadi Re:Why? (204 comments)

[citation needed]
Do you have any figures about this? Mobile air conditioners with COP of 2 or so are being developed these days (IPCC/TEAP special report, page 306), and I can't imagine the energy consumption is significant compared to the actual transport, unless the temperature differences are extreme. I'm willing to be proven wrong, though.

Study Abroad For Computer Science Majors?

ngileadi Re:In the UK, try Cambridge, York, Warwick... (386 comments)

There's some information about visiting students in Cambridge.
Very few students are accepted, especially in technical subjects, and they normally study the first or second year (so compsci part IA or IB, not II). Cambridge also has an established exchange program with MIT, where applications are somewhat less competitive for those coming to Cambridge.
