The part you're apparently referring to is
> Synopsis: stop buying Windows hardware (laptops, desktops, servers, etc.) if you want Linux to work on your computer. :) [this is the long-term solution: make Linux impossible for (at least a significant subset of the) hardware vendors to ignore so that hardware will work with Linux without the hassle of figuring out The Way Windows Does It.]
> when Windows has 90% of the market share for desktops and laptops you'll never convince Samsung, Gigabyte or ASUS (for example) to bother testing with Linux.They won't even notice the drop in sales if Linux users stop buying from them.
No, but smaller vendors like zareason and system76 will, and they'll get more clout with the ODMs and particularly those with write access to the BIOS who're in charge if they serve as the front for every Linux buyer.
This is how Apple does it. It's just that buying Apple to run MacOS is compulsory. Otherwise, you have idiots like Linux users who focus on short-term gains of an epsilon shinier hardware and sacrifice the ability for Linux to be a fully functional on it. It clearly works; Apple could do it even pre-iPod. We just need to put down the Windows hardware crack.
