| It is clear to me that retail outlets in North America tend to comply with
| M$âs wishes when it comes to allowing real competition in operating systems on
| retail shelves. Here are some compelling evidences:
| 1. The standard argument is that retailers should supply what their
| customers want. Why is it that Walmart.comâs customers want 70 books on
| Linux but only 2 PCs, and then only very low-end devices? That other OS
| finds 470 books and 426 computers. If 7:1 is the ratio of interest, should
| there not be 60 GNU/Linux PCs on those shelves?
| 2. If a customer wants Linux and searches BestBuyâs site they are given
| M$âs and Appleâs products to install their operating systems and nothing
| Linux-like at all.
