Having more users for GNU/Linux increases the chances to see hardware
shipped with Linux pre-installed, and more drivers will be written for
the Free OS.

Currently it is pretty much impossible to get a Linux PC at the local
store, while it is very easy to get an Android smartphone anywhere, at
any corner. (the Galaxy S3)

This is the power of big numbers - you solve the drivers problem instantly.
