Every non trival product has errors.  ( And most trival product ;) )

Support charges "seem to me" to be one of the most popular ways for
Open Source devlopers to make an income.  Coupled with the fact that
most sane IT managers won't rely on unsupport software it seems to
make alot of sense.

Note: IT managers will rely on "officially unsupported" software if it
has an excellent track record, i.e. Debian, in the same breath why do
so many companies buy Linux supported distributions (i.e. Red Hat)?
