History says otherwise. A few notable examples:
- Apple has a long culture of non-contribution (they created their own C compiler to avoid GCC's license), but still they adopted KTHML as WebKit and have been improving it all along, even when their mortal enemy Google adopted it too.
- Many companies that were previously averse to GPL code (and Free software in general) are now contributing actively to the Linux kernel. Just in the 3.7 kernel we find Oracle, AMD (previously ATI), Marvell or Cisco.
For every Nvidia there are many Apples.
