That doesn't mean they allow their customers to use it.

Think about it, the minimum wage call-centre people work from scripts.
That's workable with Windows, of which there are only two
near-identical versions supported by Microsoft. I don't know OSX, but
I'd think pretty much the same was true by now.

Now, how many Linux desktops are there? How many have moveable and
customisable panels? How are you going to deal with that over the phone
from a script? That's not even thinking about the command line, and
which underlying distribution has which tools as 'standard'.
