Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu has come under a decent amount of flack over the past few months, particularly over their decision to use the 'Dash Search' to return results from Amazon by default in their most recent release.

Ah, the good, old "my way or the highway" - mentality.

Nah, I am not calling for users of proprietary drivers to be expelled from free software projects.

It's more like demonstratively not caring about them. Or as Linus Torvalds put it best:
I want people to know that when they use binary-only modules, it's THEIR problem. I want people to know that in their bones, and I want it shouted out from the rooftops. I want people to wake up in a cold sweat every once in a while if they use binary-only modules.
