I would like to know which yields better results for battery life with PPC (iBook or PowerBook): gentoo (or linux in general) or mac os x?

I did a search on this forum but got conflicted results. Someone said osx had better battery life and someone said gentoo had. So I'm really not sure which one is true.

Has to be OSX!

Better support for hardware that is concerned with preserving battery life.

TBH I've never really measured it, but my money would be on OSX.

Also you will have to do some tweeking to get what you want from your gentoo install - its the old YMMV I am afraid ;)
