There are more problems than that. Retailers selling Windows have the ability to up the revenue, and profit, by selling 'essential' addons, such as Nortons, Office, games and such which they would not have with equivalent Linux machines. Also they know that within three years the Windows machine will slow to a crawl as junk accumulates and they will 'need' a replacement that will be so much faster (though a re-install from scratch will do the same). Linux machines tend to last must longer - machines running here are between 6 and 14 years old.
