Wait? You mean if PC makers would just preload with Linux the sheeple would go along? Yeah, not buying it. Like one of the commenters wrote, most drank the Kool-Aid long ago and have fixed on Windows as the One True Grail long ago. A percentage are led away by the Jobsian shiny. Those who even care about choice are a thin reed in the wind, often constrained by the dictates of tool makers like Adobe (what? you want that in metric?). S mode would be a dangerous move in an educated society that valued choice, but that's not the world we live in. As long as the big players like Adobe and the game companies get their products into the MS store, you won't hear any complaints from the drones.
