      Excellent question! Linux doesn’t have anything to buy lots of advertisement space, nor the financial muscle of Microsoft to indirectly “pay” education boards to install them on school computers, also there isn’t anything on the same scale neither to also indirectly “pay” retailers to sell computers bundled with Linux. Great quesiton this is!
