M$ did what it could to impair playback, not copying, on GNU/Linux to prevent the OS from eroding Windows' market share. M$ does not / did not make its money from Windows sales per se, it made / makes its money from the monopoly rents on the sales of Windows. (Maybe they also make quite a bit buying and selling their own stock.) In regard to monopoly rents, maintaining market share comes before all else. They've been at this a while and work very hard to maintain their despicable reputation.
