Sell to the makers, not the victims of your software

Actually, MS didn't really "sell" to the makers. They strong-armed the makers and said "Pay us a license fee for every PC sold. Oh, and if you sell a PC without out software, we'll jack up the price (Or not sell you cheap OEM versions of software)".

The only people MS sold to were executives.
