"really it greedy to provide a free OS"

Think, Microsoft offered a free browser and a free media player... when you had to pay for them. The OS was heavily discounted for abiding OEMs. Also, it guaranteed excellent interoperability among all MS systems, applications and data formats, as long as you used its own applications...

So, MS wasn't greedy too?

But it looks for many today Google Kool-aid has a better taste than MS one - still, both are poisoned...
