Re: Perhaps money will talk louder:

If you pay for support and find a bug, you can request a fix. That's already the case.

Yes, and then you start waiting and waiting and waiting for the patch ... compare that to FSF software, where patched binaries are usually readily available in the repos, and, if they ain't, just download source, patch it, compile, done ... system patched before your request has had the time to be escalated through MS' support hell desk ...
