Everything that makes it easier to write and distribute proprietary software on Linux makes it easier to write and distribute open source software on Linux.
For technical stuff, maybe so, but there are obviously licensing issues that can make it easier or harder to write proprietary software. GNOME's choice of LGPL rather than GPL for a lot of important libraries is an example of a licensing decision that makes it easier to write proprietary software without having a substantial effect on the ease of writing open source software.
