Do you have to get naked to get attention?

Sometimes I feel guilty about writing what can pretty much be described as commercial fiction. The first manuscript my agent took on - which didn't sell - was literary fiction. By accident, the first thing that sold was a mystery. I've been writing mysteries and thrillers ever since. But then I read something like this about a literary writer who gets great reviews and few sales and I think - hm, maybe I'd better not bitch about the road not taken.
