"This 'not wanting to sell Linux' may be the result of some 'carrot or stick' action from Microsoft. M$ (sic) can afford to offer some favorable conditions on Windows to sellers who agree 'not to want to sell Linux.' They sustain it for a while, until the competition is strangled. Then they raise the prices. This is a classical case of dumping. Waving a big stick may be even more effective. Intimidating in a subtle way does not cost them anything. Of course, nobody knows about this because it is all done secretly.
