Why is it that these studies neglect so many options to
present a binary problem formulation?

For example, LINUX is a UNIX workalike that runs on Intel-based
hardware. This
results in UNIX functionality at PC price/performance. I use it on my
computer. My work cumputer is a high-end NT workstation,
that can do almost as much as my cheap home computer with the free
operating system. More famous uses of LINUX include visual effects for
the movie "Titanic" ( http://www.msnbc.com/news/139296.asp )

Is Your Company Prepared for Wintel's Invasion of the World Market For
Low-End Workstations?
(PR Newswire; 04/06/98)

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 6 /PRNewswire/ Are you prepared for the
changes that will accompany the recent introduction of Wintel systems to
the desktops of the world's technical computer users? In 1997, as Wintel
systems finally became competitive, they began to collide with already
established RISC/UNIX low-end workstations, creating not only the
concerns of intra-segment competition, but the strategic problems of
inter-segment competition.
