Which means that by not supporting linux in the first place they are
making their system a target for linux hackers(and reverse engineers).
To create a system for linux, requires breaking their security, and
once their security is broken, the way is clear for illegitimate as
well as legitimate tasks.
I'm not suggesting that they should support linux because there is a
market for it. I'm saying that they should support linux, to remove
the incentive for someone else to do so at their expense. I'm not sure
whether to refer to fairplay or playfair, since I forget which is
which, but that is what happens, when you don't support linux.
