And this is what I always do. As a person responsible for recommending/approving/buying harware related stuff for few different companies, I make it a point that I *prefer* only those brands that have support for FreeBSD. For me, this is more so in case of RAID cards.

Except most of the people using FreeBSD in a professional setting are pretty high up on the IT/IS/MIS food chain. If a product doesn't work on my platform of choice then there's no way in hell I'll approve it's uses on other platforms, FreeBSD is my litmus test. If a vendor doesn't support FreeBSD they can still pass my test by providing open documentation.
I see the whole issue this way: companies are free to choose whether to support FreeBSD or not, and I am free to choose/recommend their product in my installations. It's only when we start to speak with our money bags, that it will make commercial sense to them to support *BSD.
