Do senior management at companies think laterally?

What surprises me is that none of the big and small search engines are launching products for Linux. By products I mean, desktop search tool, latest messengers, photo management and editing tool like Picasa, etc.

Almost everyone agrees that Linux has about 3% marketshare on desktops and much more on servers. Almost every geek uses Linux either at home or office. So why not try and please this crowd? How much would it cost Yahoo or AskJeeves to launch their desktop search tool for Linux users? Not much, I am guessing. So why don't they put some money in development and create a strong brand loyalty?? It beats me.
