Yes, it is hard to see the point without further explanations. I understood the original post as saying "Linux is not $3, it is $0 since it is free", but that would be misguided since Xandros and Ubuntu will charge something to the manufacturer anyway. Your interpretation ("Linux is cheap and libre too") makes more sense.
