This will go WAAY off topic, but before someone points that out, let me
get the following in:
Your shoes, your clothes and your phone are not made in Australia. This
is because nobody in Australia wants to make your shoes for the price
you're prepared to pay for them.
Your Ubuntu/computer support eventually may not come from Australia.
This is because nobody in Australia wants to spend an hour on the phone
with you for the price you're prepared to pay for it.
See any difference there?
