well now that you have started doing it, you probably know the
answer ;-)

so why do you not advertise your company as shipping with Linux or
GNU/Linux or free operating system or open source operating system (take
your pick)?

why do you assume that we are not doing so? You may not be aware of the
fact that one thing that distinguishes humans from animals is the
ability to talk (and generally communicate using the spoken and written
word.) It is only donkeys, buffaloes and other beasts of burden that go
around doing productive work without talking. For us, work done without
talking about it is not productive or profitable.
