Er - hardware manufacturers do develop and supply Linux drivers.
Intel chipsets and video, AMD/ATI likewise, HP printers are some examples just off the top of my head. Last week I bought a HDHomeRun tuner which advertises on the box "Compatible with DVR/PVR software for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux" (and they apparently did or at least contributed to MythTV support - which works very nicely, thank you).
True, not all hardware manufacturers support Free OSes, but many do.
