We're talking about priorities.   When you reward companies that
do things that aren't in the best interests of the future of Linux
you're not helping Linux.

If you sell out the hope of long term gains for some immediate benefit 
you haven't really won anything and the above benefits will evaporate 
very quickly.

Would you buy products from a company who used slave-labor-class
workers in remote parts of the world just because they had a cooler 
logo or a more padded sole?   Sometimes the best decision isn't the
easiest one.
