Try any of the new Linux distributions - Suse/Fedora/Mandrake.

Re: 1 ICE = 10 EVs

Wonderful comparison! But theres more to add to it -

Manufacturing an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) with tens of thousands of moving parts and intricate complex assemblies which require far more effort than manufacturing electric motors and their associated power electronics.

Consider the environmental cost of manufacturing the thousands of components of an ICE + its assembling costs + maintenance costs + replacement costs. They are enormous when compared to simple electric motors which need almost (almost) no maintenance at all!
