They noticed that the OEMs simply refused to give Linux a real chance on the desktop (including making sure the hardware support is there and actually selling them cheaper since you're not paying for the Windows license).

Regardless, Linux is for those who want it, not necessarily for everyone. Those of us who want it like the advantages it gives us.
