That's a pretty uneven comparison. Hardware manufacturers sell hardware not drivers! If they can get someone else to write drivers for them their costs will go down. They currently pay people to write drivers for commercial operating systems. Why wouldn't they want free drivers for free operating systems?

It has puzzled me for a while how hardware companies can be so stupid as to not be giving kernel developers documentation for their hardware. They give a lot of reasons for it but none of them seem to stand up to logic well. You have to be an IP lawyer to get it I guess.
