I think the description you were looking for is:

Customer-unfriendly

In addition to considering the free software community to stupid to
benefit from their code and claiming there is no demand for free
drivers, requiring their users to spend time configuring the hardware
they paid for isn't very customer friendly if you ask me. If I insert a
videocard in my system I fully expect it to just work, even when the
kernel gets upgraded.

It's time to stand up and let these companies know our requirements and
one of them is that our hardware just works.
