Android is doing pretty good in the smartphone market, and OS X is doing pretty good on the desktop PC front (BSD Unix instead of Linux, but essentially what you're asking for). Both can command good profit margins due to restricted hardware platforms.

I don't know if there's a way to counter Windows on the desktop. If you're plain Linux, the GPL is going to hamper your ability to charge for the software on its own (it wants to be freeeeee), so you're going to have to charge for hardware or maybe support.
