Windows has only one maker.  Hardware that can run Windows has many makers, including Apple.  But Windows is proprietary, and the only PC OS that tried to be "a better Windows than Windows" (namely, OS/2) is long dead, despite IBM's backing and IBM's access to early Microsoft code.

Likewise, cost of ownership is not the same thing as cost of initial purchase.  Cost of ownership is a measure that takes into account many more variables, including performance, reliability, cost to repair, longevity, effect on human productivity, and residual sales value.
