Oh. That's easy to understand:

Worse is better.

Why is windows dominate on the desktop? Why did Unix beat out other much better optimized systems? Why did Linux become the most popular posix-y system when it's full of so many idiosyncrasies and the BSD OSes were technically superior for many years early on and were just as free?

etc etc.

The answer is that implementation differences in technology pale in importance when compared to external factors and realities.

:)

The corollary to this is that technical superiority isn't going to do much for you in terms of marketability nor usefulness for your target users and developers. Ignore external realities at your peril.

:P
