No, because you don't pay for SLE as

Actually, you do as large amounts of open source code is
developed by paid developers, for example for the Linux kernel
That's where most of the money ends up, but Thorsten
is probably right that most SUSE customers have more
the support and maintenance in mind when they pay you.
All of them are right
(otherwise things won't work for a longer time):
Customers pay SUSE for support and maintenance and
SUSE's paid kernel developers provide that for the kernel
and other SUSE people provide that for other components.
In particular customers with specific hardware in their data center
and specific software requirements for their special environments
that no free software volunteer would ever have at home
can pay someone who can provide support and maintenance
for their specific needs.
