It sounds like you're incapable of realizing that people have concern
for those other than themselves.
I.e., people are more willing to try Linux if they can run their
existing Windows apps without rebooting.
After a while, they'll may find that there's better, Open Source
equivalents of these apps on Linux natively.
More users = more apps, less shitty websites, better drivers, and more
developers (OSS and otherwise).
So I guess that, like everything has a selfish motivatiuon, but your
assumption is, frankly, dumb.
