Its incredibly naive to think that just because Microsoft is ubiquitous, that a consumer will choose it over something else just by having two computers side by side. If that were the case, Apple would have no market share at all.

Oh, and Microsoft has gotten where it is today by doing exactly as you say they didn't do. They force people to buy their product by forcing OEM's to produce only for their product.
