Re: basic cuestions
In many cases companies that require you to use specific software will offer free or pay for you to recieve training on that software maybe you should ask around at work. You may have to give up some of your time to become competent with your comany's software but it's a good idea to do so as you will become more efficient and thus more productive. The key is you don't have to choose one or the other learn or have free time. You can dedicate a small portion of your free time to learning while getting the help you need from others in the mean time. To answer your questions I think it would be fine for someone to hire a tech support staff to offer paid support via phone however I think there is quite a bit of shortage of people who are qualified and want that type of job for every linux distro to have such support. On the second question I really hate companies that force software on their people however they have to do what works for them and this translates to a price most emplyees must pay if they choose to work under a company rather than work for themselves.
