Ubuntu is about as easy to use Linux distribution as you'll ever find. But, if you're a small business owner wouldn't it be nice to have affordable customer service for those problems that aren't easy to fix?

Canonical has agreed to offer Ubuntu server operating support to Zentyal customers. The result: Zentyal and its authorized server partners can more easily engage small and midsize (SMB) customers, the company claims.
Ubuntu Linux, which started with the tagline “Linux for human beings,” was originally an easy to use Linux distribution for desktop users. Canonical picked what they considered to be the best of breed applications from the many thousands available in the Debian Linux distribution, put on a healthy dose of polish, and released their own version.
Seriously, dudes, I actually want to live La Vida Canonical. I am your perfect customer, ready and willing to spend my money. I'm a huge supporter of Canonical's work to promote the consumer Linux desktop. Trust me. But you've got to make it worthwhile, and you've got to make it easy.
I was wondering about the support for Ubuntu in general?
If a (small/large)business is running Ubuntu, what type of issues does Canonical help out with?
if a business is running a windows app, via wine does canonical help
out with that
when a business is running software that is not installed via the
software but via PPA(stable/beta) and or downloaded manually.
Canonical’s recent efforts to promote desktop Ubuntu on the workstations of large organizations have focused primarily on the business world. But perhaps the company’s greatest prospects lie in the education channel. That’s where 220,000 Ubuntu-based PCs are now running in Andalusia, Spain.
