That's not true (unless "everyone else" means all people with the same support level). The people in Qt support will also try to directly provide you with a patch and/or workaround, if possible. Also the internal development teams in the Qt Company will prioritize bugs coming from commercial customers. That's why it's actually advised to file a bug through Qt Support, or at least inform Qt Support that you filed a bug in JIRA if you are a commercial customer.
