Having worked for proprietary software companies for a few years before founding my own company, I have to say no, there is no good reason to support proprietary software, ever. The primary reason for my opinion is simply that projects I worked on have been killed due to neglect from upper management. This is one of the worst possible fates a software developer can ever see for his life's work, it happens all too often in proprietary software companies, and it can't happen in open source.
