The primary goal of a vendor is to make money.
I started working on OpenBSD, and many earlier projects, because I have always felt that vendor systems were not designed for quality.
In some industry markets, high quality can be tied to making more money, but I am sure by now all of us know the computer industry is not like that.
I work on OpenBSD fulltime, as the project leader. I set some directions, increase communication between the developers, and try to be involved in nearly every aspect of the base system.
