I looked at a bunch of Linux cert and Linux pre-installed options recently. They were all quite a bit more expensive than buying a computer with Windows and wiping the drive. Ranging in price difference from 50% up to 300%. With the price factor so much against Linux it's much more appealing for most consumers to simply pay the MS tax.
