Bundling the OS is probably more important than marketing, as people will often use what is provided with their machines out of sheer inertia. My first computer came with a dual-boot OS/2 warp 3.0 - Windows 3.11 setup, care of the now defunct Escom computers. I still have eCS 1.2 running under Parallels on my Macbook Pro more for sentimental reasons than actual need, but I loved that OS because of its stability, flexibility and multitasking prowess which I never experienced with Windows.
