Next to a discussion of the features of Mandriva Linux 2006, the used software and hardware, the installation of the system and the first impressions (including some benchmark numbers), part one includes a background article on Linux software installation.

Microsoft's "Get the Facts" advertising campaign makes the claim that Windows offers a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than Linux, and backs it up with reports from well-known industry analyst firms. But Linux advocates claim that the TCO of Linux is lower, and some other studies back them up. How can you separate the fact from the fiction?
Ron Hovsepian, Novell's new president and chief operating officer, noted that Novell has observed a wait-and-see attitude toward open source.
Open-source advocates have lashed out at SAP after a senior executive's "bold and ill-informed" criticisms. Shai Agassi, SAP's head of product development and technology, said open source represents a kind of "IP socialism" that kills innovation. Agassi later downplayed the comments, saying they had been reported out of context.

The answer will be heavily influenced, of course, by the competition between the King of Search and the current desktop market leader.
