Although I don't know definitively either, I have the suspicion BSDfan666 is correct.

Being slightly different from the standard is a deterrent from copying which would cut into sales. Commercial companies don't like sales figures to go down. This puts upper management into finger-pointing mode which has proven over time to be detrimental to the continued employment of those lower on the org chart.

Microsoft does the same thing.

As for mounting random CD's to see what was on them, trying a commercial install disc was perhaps the worst choice.
