At this power level you're right at the edge of usability of linear regulators. As you can tell from the need of a heatsink they are not very efficient.

Power wasted by a linear regulator = (V_input - V_output) * I_out

These days high efficiency switching regulators are real cheap, and they run cool to the touch.
