Yes indeed, there are good explanations/reasons. I can think also of freetype related limitations/patents.
In my eyes, reviews should not overlook these. If the review is too positive, frustration of newcomers is likely. And I feel that frustrated newcomers might eventually impact Linux image more badly than Microsoft.
If Linux (including installing/configuring/tweaking) is presented as a cool thing for techies, everyone might choose to take the challenge and eventually assess his skills. If it's presented as "it works out of the box" without any warning, I will grow bad feelings if it doesn't.
