What support do you want? Are you talking about the paid support something like that Red Hat and Novell give to their customers? And how can an operating system give support to its users? Its the companies that develop enterprise distributions that can.

There are a few hundred publicly known linux operating system distributions in existence. It's rather hard to enforce any common standards for so much systems. A large number of these are niche systems or custom-tailored for very specific duties, maybe even just pet projects, and often maintained by a small number of volunteers . You can't request free 24/7 support, but you can certainly buy support with money. Money works usually - it's very rare that someone turns down an offer to combine his/her hobby with the advantages of making money.

I believe your instructor intended that you look at some websites for Linux distros and read up on what support they offer. You can also get some good info at

I'm closing this thread---please start a new one--with specific questions--after you have done your basic research.
