This is very interesting (I believe).

I think it could cause some level (elevated [that is]) of animosity towards Linux. The average buyer will see the computer on sale at a low price, and simply buy it. (They then will question "Why is [insert name of application here] not working?").

I (personally have) found the transition between Windows and Linux very easy (mainly due to Ubuntu [the simplicity of Ubuntu {to be precise}]).
