Their support page says "We provide Level 1, 2 and 3 technical support
covering the installation of Linux distributions and software,
configuration, performance improvement, software maintenance, and
technology watch."  They seem to have a lot of enterprise and oem

They are not just European, since they have a Brazilian office as a
result of their merger with Connectiva a few years ago.  They do not
list any other offices.  I think that they had a Montreal office years
ago.  Their "Choose your country" page lists 21 countries. You would
have to contact them for more specific info, I guess.  

I have been running Mandriva for many years.  I consider it one of the
best.  I found Ubuntu to be not as good as Mandriva, though I haven't
tried the latest version yet.
