If these companies currently give us software for their hardware that doesn't do the obvious things that we want it to, and if these companies will soon force us to upgrade to software that does even less, then what makes us think that they will allow us to run other software in the future?
We can "only purchase" those that support alternative software, but doesn't that really just amount to us "only purchasing" those that support the features we want in their software?
