"Why? Because Linux DOESN'T sell a lot of extras. Why? Because Linux just works. Ok, so there's still some faults in Linux, but as with any evolving piece of software, that's to be expected. But most of those problems are the fault of the OEM's who either don't support Linux, or provide shoddy support. If an OEM does support Linux properly, everything's golden in penguin land. The same holds true with Windows. OEM support either makes or breaks an OS. But that's another topic for another day.

"So anyways, why doesn't Linux sell extras? Or I should say, why doesn't it sell a lot of extras? Because Linux just works. It doesn't have virus problems, or spyware, or any of the nonsense that has generated a multi-billion dollar economy that makes its money cleaning up the mess left behind by Windows."
