The normal response is: You get what you paid for.

However even tho FreeRTOS is free it is still a much better deal and security risk than those black-box proprietary and more expensive solutions.

Of course the huge fly in the ointment is that the actual vendors using an OSS solution won't want to pony up the resources to fix these problems in their end-user products.
