Doing feature development like Intel or IBM can afford has interesting dynamics. For starters: not much secrecy. Secondly, no time-to-market pressure. Thirdly, the freedom to pick versions and platforms you want.
I can promise you, there certainly is time-to-market pressure. And every public traded company cannot discuss products before they've been officially announced so that does mean working with the community on a feature for a product that you can't talk about.
