    For audio/video coding you could use other applications: xvid comes to mind. Audacity.
    You can't compare "winrar" but you could use the command line version which is available on both.

    Kano,

    I will give you another example: I was just reading this review:

    Sorry I was not clear.
    I don't have a complete answer, but I think we should:

    I actually thought that Ubuntu was a tad better in power savings compared to Windows. Clearly, I was wrong.
    This said, perhaps there's...

    This is a very interesting article.
    What I gather from it is:
    - there's still an obvious gap between Linux and Windows performance, however, the gap is certainly smaller than I expected.
