Umm actually Dell is also a partner with Novell as is IBM and there are a few other OEM's that offer either SLED or openSUSE. Novell, Redhat, Mandriva and many others also make their product to sell support. It's their main business model so singling out Ubuntu as the only commercial distro out there being the only ones interested in selling support is quite frankly completely false.
