Really? I wouldn't want such a myopic view when choosing to allocate our
shareholders dollars. Best tool for the job. Period!

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.

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.
