There is a company, Cloudera, which is the formal support/developer behind Hadoop, so there is someone you can go to for support.

	    I would imagine that hadoop will be another of those flash in the pan projects that withers on the vine.  For one nothing outside of Hadoop supports the hbase database that they've created. and outside vendor support is the life blood of any supporting matter, like hadoop.
	    Now I'm not suggesting that we all simply keep our heads in the sand, the older more established database vendors like Oracle will be around for quite some time to come.  Any radical change, like Hdoop and Goggles BigFile system, tend to remain point solutions to someone's peculiar problem.  In hadoop's case it appears to be a open source project that is simply the desire of a handful of parties interested in finding a new way to re-invent the wheel.  The software industry has a habit of doing that since day one.  Pity too since some of those efforts took a fairly simple process and turned it into a real mess.  Take C and C++ as an example.
