To make money, lots of it. Imagine vendors like HP, Dell or IBM promising a distributor big bucks for shipping (supporting, allowing etc.) a binary module that supports their hardware only. Something along the lines of Compaq EFS for SCO OpenServer - the stuff that you could get only for Compaq machines under SCO OpenServer. Greed does funny things to people...
