HD manufacturers and Free Software (was: [SOLVED] Is squeeze compatible with WD20EARS and other 2TB drives?)

While I never expect any OS-specific support from hard-drive suppliers,
I find it offensive for a manufacturer to explicitly single out the OS
I use, indeed.
So, to get back to Debian, I wonder which manufacturers are more friendly
to Free Software (e.g. provides tools to update their drives's firmware
from systems like Debian).
