Having been somebody who bought an Acer Aspire One linux installed 
computer from pcworld, the kernal installed was Linux Lite, and the guy 
told me, they had had almost all the linux laptops returned, biggest 
reasons, couldnt get it to connect to the internet, no support from 
ISPs, cant update/use apple products, same with Android 
product.....which is why stopped selling them. Acer Aspire also refused 
to support anybody who installed any other kernel during the warranty 

Nowadays, people will be reluctant to use a computer they cant use their 
apple products with.....
