Not every company is willing to open source all their software and make it free.
Right, well, if I pay for a piece of software that I depend on to make use of hardware that I've purchased, I want the source code so that I can make sure it continues to work for my purposes.

Just because they would deliver the source code with their product doesn't make it "Free", unless they specifically relinquish redistribution rights to the user of the software. That may or may not fit within their business model and is their choice to make. However, depriving the user of the source code is to maintain control over the user.

Score:3, Interesting
