Perhaps what is needed here is a tie in with local linux user groups,  
so there is a level of local and free support avaialble to end users,  
companies would not be passing the problems on to us,  as they would 
have to deal with hardware and other issues,  but at least there would 
be a level of local support and access to local users to complement the 
offer and support the supplier offers.
