Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

We did not use the managed commercial support, but instead relied on community forums and official documentation. Ubuntu is very well documented across both instructional documentation from the developers themselves as well as informal support forums [ServerFault, YCombinator, Reddit]. It's easy enough to find an answer to any question you may have.

I have not used the paid-for Canonical support option; however, there are a plethora of free resources available online. A simple google search fixes almost anything that may go wrong or is not behaving :) It is excellent; however, it requires plenty of time to research the issue and pinpoint a solution. I guess paying Canonical makes it easier, but we have never run into a problem we couldn't fix in-house and for about 20-30 minutes. All in all - community support is unparalleled.

Support has been serviceable, occasionally we would like a response sooner, but we have had no high importance cases thus far. Knock on wood! I would lump this in with 'good enough' support. It won't blow you away or be especially proactive as other companies may be. You do get access to knowledgeable support engineers, however.

It has huge community support. So basically any error that you get just can search it on Ubuntu Forums and there is definitely someone who has had that error as well. If not, you can always create a ticket there and Reddit has a lot of forums related to the same.

Ubuntu has a very big user base and great community support, it is rare that you don't find a resolution to a problem in the first 10 minutes you are looking for it. Furthermore, if you want an additional safety net, you can purchase support online as well. The platform brings the best of both worlds, with a strong community and the potential to purchase enterprise support as well.

This rating is not for Canonical's Enterprise-level support (though I am sure it is fine.). Instead, it is a rating of the superb user base that Ubuntu Linux enjoys. There are so many users of Ubuntu and its various flavors that if your users encounter a problem, it is likely that you'll be able to find an applicable solution from the many forums and discussion groups out on the internet. These forums practically eliminate the need for enterprise-level support.
