My personal opinion is that people do not switch to MacOS but rather to Apple 
machines which are typically better built than standard Intel based machines. 
It is the robustness of the hardware that appeals to most users, not the OS.

To have more people switch to a GNU/Linux system, you would have to find a 
maker that builds high quality machines for a price similar to what Apple 
offers (which is in all likeliness not possible) and offers similar flawless 
integration between the OS and the machine (which is possible).
