None of what you wrote proves that PC's sell because of Windows branding. Also, you're a blind fool if you believe there's real choice in the PC market.

Maybe on your planet where computers aren't used to run applications but we earthlings use computers precisely for their ability to run applications. So down here choice is thought of in those terms.

you are a blind fool if you think that the OS matters any more.

Stop thinking like it is 1999. Computing has moved outside of the desktop and is more pervasive than ever on more OSs than ever in more form factors than ever.
