There are a lot of people who criticize people who contribute to opensource for being less than perfect. In many cases, there is a lot more criticism of people who contribute imperfectly than of the companies who are actively hostile and contribute nothing.
It's important to recognize the contributions from companies, even while we state that we wish they were doing more. In many ways, when you are criticizing them, that is when it's most important to praise them for what they are already doing.

One can say that while, at the same time, saying that things could be a lot better. I think I tried to say that too. But one should not lose sight of what's good just because it's far from perfect.
