HOW do you propose to distribute Windows on Steam? it's impossible because:
a) Steam is gamestore only
b) how will you install downloaded OS? never thought about that, arn't ya?
c) Microsoft has own online store

Not everyone uses Steam and I'm sure Microsoft wants to control who downloads its products and the security measures involved as well. Which in my opinion is very understandable.
