That's not my direct experience. If I (as an individual user) interact nicely with the Open Source maintainers - i.e. get the information they ask for as fast as I can, describe the bug not my idea of the fix, and generally follow Simon Tatham's guide to bug reporting - I get solutions to my problems. This is far better than I ever got from a company issuing binary drivers.
