Probably more CPU usage.
Often, when i look at reviews for various Linux distros, many show very low CPU usage.
Lately, MX-Linux was probably the lowest (3-6%) i've seen for my laptop (but it did take a few reboots to get it there). But it did fluctuate quite a bit before settling there.

On Windows, it hangs at about 24% (which i guess isn't that bad).

As of this writing, Solus was settling in at 4-11% (after latest updates).

Just find it odd that fluctuations on Linux can go on for some time before settling down.

p.s. have cleaned the cpu fan recently (but that's not my issue).
