Because freedom is too important to be contrained to the ranks of
revolutionists and appointed Windows administrators?

That's why we support operating systems like Windows in the first
place when it can be done with reasonable effort and without
sacrificing quality for the free systems.  If you want to have people
come to you, the way is not by barricading their doors and telling
them to jump out of windows if they want to be free.
