Microsoft Bart Eppenauer, Microsoft's chief patent guy, in an interview with The Verge: "We believe our patent laws have served the country very well." Loosely translated, this reads: "This system that gives me my six-figure income and is a fine anti-competitive tool for my company have served me and my company well, the damage to the industry be damned."

KDE is more fashionable and appealing than Windows. Also, most users aren't driven by fashion contrary to your idea, but by network effects and market penetration. I.e. they use what's preinstalled without second thought - and that's Windows in the vast majority of cases.
