Why I understand the joke, they are probably targeting a demographic which is a more remunerative target, there's a good chance they are in the upper percentiles of wealth, and they still have $$$$$$ to steal/scam even after they got their expensive toys. Or you can get access to systems of people in higher positions within a company, from where more remunerative attacks can be launched, or more useful information gathered

Targeting Linux won't give you the same chances of getting into something valuable.
