There are plenty of companies that will provide linux (and othe open-source) support on a professional, commercial basis.
Isn't that what Red Hat does these days?
linux started life as a geeks plaything then real engineers decided it might be useful, then ran smack into the attitude of geek programmers.
I think the real problem is with the lazy cheapskates who just think they can get something for nothing.
If you're prepared to enter properly into the open-source "community" spirit, and/or to engage support on a proper, professional basis - then I'm sure you'll be fine...
