I'm not privy to the plans for the future, but I haven't heard anything about
sales of the boxed version being stopped.

But opensuse is just the development project. Obviously they will move on to
the next version as soon as this one is done, this is what development does:
they develop. This will happen regardless of the fate of the boxed version

If I understand things correctly (Anders, I hope this is right)?

OpenSuSE = Development Tree = Raw builds to Basic Interoption without problems

FactorySuSE = Factory Tree = Opensuse output updated and fixes to Pre-release

NovellSuSE = Final Version Product = Boxed sets and Supported Releases
