How does Enterprise Linux work?

Enterprise Linux operating systems are offered with support options in the form of subscriptions at various severity levels. Subscriptions include support, updates and patches for the appropriate term. In addition, the software is certified by numerous hardware and application manufacturers.
The free Linux variations, like CentOS or Scientific Linux are not certified or only certified by a few manufacturers and the support is usually only provided by the community, i.e. the developer community.
