That's not really true. Look beyond the desktop and at mobile and embedded system's you'll see Linux in several commercial products. Many have managed to get around those shortcomings by forking (at least temporarily) the Linux kernel and developing and maintaining a different user space. It just hasn't really happened on the desktop.
