Gentoo is free software and offers free help through our great Gentoo community. Some people either do not have the time or have specialized needs and are willing to hire someone to either maintain or add additional functionality to their Gentoo system. The following is a list of people and companies who are interested in providing paid technical support for Gentoo.
Please note that some consultants donate some of their time or income (derived from Gentoo) back into supporting Gentoo. This is up to each consultant or company and is pointed out in the event that it may influence your choice of technical support.
