Nope, perfectly correct.

They never really supported GNU/Linux but their attitude towards "us"
turned decidedly nasty early last year.

Just to reiterate my message...

Support those vendors who actively support GNU/Linux and FLOSS first and
foremost. Wherever possible stop supporting those who don't, and let
them know why.

I make a point of doing this every time and, if enough people do so,
their attitudes may change.
