    Perceived risk may explain why some people pirate Windows as opposed to buying it, but it doesn't really explain why people pirate Windows instead of using a free alternative. The only real explanation for that is that people want Windows more.

    This is exactly right. People would rather risk criminal fines, lawsuits, and closure of their business than use Linux. That's how good Windows is.
