About support, for this moment I have to refer you to the respected Web sites of the distributors. It may be wise to start off on a list of demands and
wishes and see what distributions live up to your technical specs. After
that you will have a short list to verify if all support and pricing issues are really what expect. There are more companies delivering a corporate Linux distribution that you ought to consider as well, for instance: Mandrake Linux, Linspire and Sun Java Desktop. Depending on the current infrastructure and the number of users, these distributions might suit your needs.
