Quoting from the link: "..., but you can't go to BestBuy and buy Linux with a specific distro on it that everyone uses that has widespread market share"
I thought you could buy linux PCs off the shelf in one of big American chains (walmart???). Was a low powered eco thingy iirc.
Also as far as I know you can buy linux on laptops from Dell as well.
Your good nature will bring you unbounded happiness.
