I think understand why this is.
I'm sure many driver makers focused on Direct X more because of games, but it still makes me a bit sad.
Maybe someone can start a logo-project where manufactures put a WebGL or HTML5 logo on the box ;-)

The reason why Windows machines wouldn't get WebGL by default is too old drivers. For security and stability reasons we had to blacklist all drivers older than roughly mid-2010. See above-linked page for details. It's easy to force-enable if you want to.
