Not a problem, depending on the context.
I prefer to have a distro that is based on completely open source and can have the option weather to stay open source or load an app that is closed.
I do believe that the kernel and any development that is distributed open.
I am torn weather a specific distro should ship with added closed code.
I think if the distro can keep the closed software separate enough to have the option weather to load the close software add on or keep just install open only components, would not care if a distro then ships available closed options, drivers, apps, etc.
So it really depends, what is being closed sourced and how is distributed ?
It is a given, if distributing existing Kernel/GNU apps, etc, Then modified or not then source has to remain open and available.
But for sure, if a company develops an app that is installed on a Linux system after the fact, does not contain other code that is already open, then does it really matter, not really if want to use their app, you have the choice not to but if I want that app and only closed source available, then I would like to have that option.
