I would like to point out that we cannot be compared to a commercial,
closed-source entity since most of the channels that are mis-taken by
our users as support channels (such as the -project and -devel mailing
lists) would be inaccessible to the public at Microsoft.

In Debian, those channels are open, which I see as a feature, even if
that means having to redirect the occasional mis-led user to the real
support channels.
