Ubuntu vs Windows 8 battery life

I just installed Ubuntu Raring Ringtail on my HP Sleekbook and I am loving it.  Battery life went from 2 hours with Windows 8 up to 5.5 while using Ubuntu 13.04 and that’s with screen brightness a little over halfway full so that is very good.  I hate Windows 8 because it has a lot of annoying features such as when I click the shut down button, it doesn’t shutdown but rather logs off.  Windows 8 has lot’s of Apple copycat features.  Too much for me to deal with.  I am sticking with Linux Ubuntu.  The good thing about Linux is that it is less prone to Malware and viruses than Windows is.
