Whereas businesspeople don't coerce you into buying there product.People like Bill gates used persuasion rather than coercion to get people to buy his software.
The majority of programs out there are geared for (if not exclusively for) use with Windows and aside from Macs just about any laptop or home computer you buy will automatically come with Windows on it. Whether or not this is Gates' fault I do not know. I'm sure his investors want to make money and there are probably hundreds of people working on marketing whom Gates has never even spoken to. But to say that we are not coerced into using Windows is rather silly considering the circumstances.
