If you don't trust Intel, don't run their microcode.

If you don't trust Logitech, don't use their mice and keyboards containing their firmware.

If you don't trust Seagate, don't use their hard drives containing their firmware.

If you don't trust Nvidia, don't use their graphics cards containing their firmware.

None of the above are open source, and at least one of the above is in many, many machines running a Linux-kernel based OS.
