Commercial support for Ubuntu is an essential ingredient to the success of Linux in the corporate and business community. Although hundreds, if not thousands, of consultants well versed in Linux and UNIX are available on call for a fee, here is a short list of the best-known Linux support providers:
• www.ubuntu.com/support/services—Go straight to the source for a range of support options. You can get help on Ubuntu direct from Canonical software, or from a local support provider.
• www.hp.com/linux—HP offers a comprehensive package of Linux services and hardware that covers almost everything that you would want to do, including consultancy, business solutions, and hardware specification and implementation.
