"Commercial support" is generally understood to mean a vendor that
supports the product it sells. If you buy a suit, you can take it to a
third-party tailor to fix defects, but that's not the same thing as
receiving support (e.g. exchanges or refunds) from the retailer you
bought it from.
Whether or not one *needs* commercial support from a vendor is an
entirely separate issue. However, it *is* a differentiator between
community distributions and commercial distros, and as such should be
considered if you're trying to choose between the two.
