  • I'm wondering how much of an effect Aero Compiz might have had on these results. Aero is enabled by default on Win7 and, as far as I know, some Compiz effects are enabled by default on recent versions of Ubuntu. If power consumption is a real concern, I'd be interested to see this test repeated with both respective features turned off.

To err is human -- to blame it on a computer is even more so.
