Could it perhaps be that someone interested in manipulating statistics
thought it might make good PR?

That company has used PR instead of reliability ever since it broke off the
joint venture with IBM; buying that in part through offering IBM virtually
free software as an "inverted threat" not to block the severing of the
contractual arrangement with IBM.

That isn't the claim of a disgrunted user or employee... it has been well
publicised over many years. The ongoing litigation against them makes
interesting reading too.
