    Welcome to the real world of business Roy Schestowitz.

    And one other thing, if:

    Linux is free.
    Linux is better.
    Linux is in demand
    etc

    Why should anything other than possibly Microsoft offering Windows for free
    even matter?

    Free should always win over having to pay for something.

    So why can't free Linux compete?

    Why aren't these manufacturers loading free Linux and thus increasing their
    profits?

    Why?

    Maybe, just maybe, the demand for desktop Linux is so low that companies
    can't sell enough Linux machines to make it worth their while.

    Or maybe people just want Windows and don't want Linux.
