I have used AutoCAD for over 5 years. My company uses Draftsight as an alternative of AutoCAD sometimes. It is way less expensive with …

Support is not on the top of our list. Most issues can be resolved through user interaction and user forums. Draftight support hasnt been able to solve the issues in the past before finding a solution ourselves. Improvements to the program are always being made but sometimes its best to just leave a good thing alone.

I did not join and purchase the premium support because I have needed it very few times in many years of using the product. My thought is that the best possible tech support service is the one you don't need to call it because the product doesn't cause any problems.

yes, support is mandatory to have, a few things can be worked thru. But if it dead in the water, in must be fixed Now. Maybe a quick, well defined, easy to locate access point for help is there somewhere, but it always seems that I get the slow process.
I must keep up and going to meet deadlines

I do not need premium support to use a 2D drafting tool. The world of 2D ended at Y2K so paying for extra support is like purchasing extended warranties on your keyboard and mouse. Spilling coffee on them still voids the support contract so wasting that 50 dollars seems like that, a waste.

Dont understand the question, appears we have an option to purchase premium support and have never seen it offered in the purchasing process. I dont believe its right to make people pay a higher cost for premium support whether you are a standard or professional Draftsight user all people are equal and support should be considered essential for all users no matter what version you purchase.
