But some distros are in the business of becoming more and more of an ISV. Or occasionally an ISV will decide they need to have a distro. This leads to conflicts of interest and ethically questionable monetization decisions that never go over well with the community. Mint seems to be the counterexample of a good ISV/distro hybrid. They somehow manage to be an ethical upstream developer, listen to people and collect donations without making anyone too upset.
