Re: Debian: abandon ship? - support
you ( the company ) can get support contracts for any linux
flavor .... one just has to understand what is covered
and what is not .... and what the turn around time is
for any "incidents" and how much the company gets dinged..
- both ml and "paid support" has its benefits...
if there's anything that's bad is to pay for support that
you never get and the ml answered it faster and correctly for free..
-- as always ( semi-joke ) let the boss chose what he wants to bet his
job on... and try to make it work for him/her....
-- redhat's support fee of $50K/yr is way way too high for
what they provide... :-)

> Well, there is a valid point in there. I would never "bet my job" on a mailing list. I do however "bet my job" on a cpl of redhat systems, why? Becuase my employer DOES have a support _contract_ with redhat, making me stay hired even if the box keels over. Would i be able to sort a deb system out with the help of the list? Heck yes, been doing unix for a living for some eight years. But i still cant get a _contract_ on deb support from the list, which is what my employer requires for a mission critical server.
