The crapware comes preinstalled. When system is sold all the income from crapware is already accounted for. And most crapware creators don't really obsessed enough to give higher price to manufacturers who cripple Linux.
This means that for manufacturer Linux-incompatible device is bad. It may not be "bad enough" to warrant full Q&A cycle but you may be sure that nobody intentionally cripples Linux: all the cases I've seen so far are easily explained by sloppiness, not malice.
