Yes, it is the perception I think. Buy a PC, windows included... Not free, 
but as a value added (minus?) feature so the unit price can be a bit 
higher. So while the OS is a paid for product and there is support 
provided, it does not cost any more than buying the same computer and 
adding Linux. To the user, it was free. It is often the same with some HW. 
Buy the audio interface and a DAW comes with it. The DAW is free (and 
probably demo quality) but the user can still tap the same support as the 
user who bought the DAW. Now of course some audio interfaces come with 
Audacity. Different story for sure.
