Why? You have a support contract with the vendor and you make them fix
the bug in version 2.0.

but, but, than you have pay money, and we just switched to Linux because
everything is gratis ;-)

Could be gratis if the source is available under a appropriate license and you have the resources and time to do it yourself. On many occasions your expertise is not operating system development or more specifically not backporting Evolution bug fixes and it works out cheaper to pay a vendor.
