RE: Very disappointed in redhat support

About 8 months ago Red Hat shifted most of their Technical
Support Functions to the Philippines. That is, when you call their
tech support number you get the Philippines. They handle all calls
unless there is a high lever problem that they cannot answer
then they leave a message with the U.S. team who will call you back.

Support was pretty bad when they first switched overseas and the knowledge
of the support staff was not as good. It has slowly
gotten better from my experience but still not up to the standards that they
should be. Also, the phone line connection often has static on it and sometimes
there are drop outs which makes it more difficult to follow the 
conversation. It's a little frustrating.

I'm sure this was a cost saving measure on Red Hat's part.
