The support is somewhat lacking; Vim doesn't really have support outside of its forums. The forums, while notably good, aren't equal to real support though, and the steep learning curve makes you wish there was a help desk that would assist with all of the basic questions. There are several handy books and guides that can be found, and most implementations of the product come with "vitutor" which walks you through its usage.

We've literally never needed to access any commercial support for Vim. Granted it is open source and community supported, so the sheer amount of online resources that are well-articulated, well maintained, and most importantly, enthusiastically discussed means you will never encounter an issue that hasn't already been solved a dozen different ways. And that level of support is a real comfort. In fact, there are blogs out there that are dedicated to just coming up with really handy tips on how to optimize your usage of Vim!

Since it's a free and open-source program, there is no company behind it and thus no "customer support". But there is a large community of Vim users and it is never hard to find the solution to problems encountered while configuring it or adding support for specific workflows.

It is open source in all that entails. There is an "official" package and documentation website, but there is no company you are getting support from. However, given the age of Vim and the fanatical love of it's users, any question you have can be (and has been) answered. Vim users love it, and love to help people learn.
