Because the whole point of Linux in the first place was that it was Unix 
written for affordable hardware, and since then it has spread because so many 
people have been able to use it (and write it) on cheap off-the-shelf systems.

If Linux had originally been developed to run only on Sparc machines, or 
Alphas, for example, there's no way it would have got as big, or as well 
recognised, as it has today.
