You can get paid support for FreeBSD, among other places, from FreeBSD 
Mall [1] and from the vendors/consultants listed directly on the FreeBSD 
website [2].  Granted, there's not the same amount of companies 
providing support for FreeBSD as there are for Linux, but it's out 
there.  Hell, we even have a small listing on the NYCBUG website..
