I would have agreed with this 5 years ago, but the current version of WinPGP
for windows is so easy to use, that I don't believe this is the reason
anymore.  I think the majority of people don't use PGP/PKI for the following

1)  They don't know it exists
2)  They don't want to spend the money on PGP (if they're not eligible to use
the freeware version
3)  They just don't consider their privacy to be important enough to warrant
the installation of a new software package.
