Most users are just "consumers". They use GNU/Linux because they don't have to pay for it, nor for OpenOffice, Gimp, mplayer, Firefox, Apache &c. If Microsoft gave away Windows and MS Office they'd switch to that in a heartbeat.
Those of us who understand why it's important for software to be free will always want free software.
Get away from the mentality that equates success with popularity.
