I actually do subscribe to such a view. Within the bounds of some very relaxed

Let's say the software being used is Free Software.

If that software is being used to the exclusion of non-Free software, that
user is one more addition to the needed network effects that will help the
software/project prosper.

One more user that may lead to better hardware support from vendors.

One user who may do something "WOW!" withg the software and whose friends may
ask how it was done. Those friends may be the ones who turn around and
provide the bug reports / finincial incentives / coding help / whatever that
the developer needs to make it world class project.

I am talking of honest to goodness users though. Not people with an agenda
against Free Software who "use" only enough to complain and then go back to
the non-Free software that they hanker for.

I don't think a Free software project should ever discount the benefits of
plain and simple users.

Enough said for now I guess.

all the best,
