Yeah you're right. Commercial support can help you by putting in more
resources when the problem is quite obvious (newly porting) and they do
have expertise in that particular area. If the problem is not that
obvious, the replies get very slow and very vague.

I'm just being negative (perhaps a bit too much) after having a meeting
last week with a commercial representative and claimed much more credit
where none or little was due to their company in an effort to accept
their licensing which resembles a typical hammer and anvil situation.

I just like the mailing list discussions: I think they are much more
productive in the middle to long run if you want to learn and are not
focussed on your little backyard.
