Anyway, what do you think will the business-novellanians do about the GNOME 3 thang? I cannot imagine SLED going that path. Thus I have an even harder time believing Novell will be a positive force in GNOME 3's development.
SLED has a profile as an alternative to Windows that doesn't require re-learning how to handle a computer. GNOME 3 with gnome-shell as its primary interface will certainly not feel familiar to ex-Windows-users. Thus I don't think Novell has an interest in developing it.
A few quick comments:
+ GNOME 3 is more than just GNOME Shell :-) There are many other things that are happening
+ I know nearly nothing about SLED business, but I can imagine that some people will want SLED with GNOME Shell because it's good
+ there will most probably a gnome-panel 2.30 that will behave like the gnome-panel that you have right now, but that will be 3.0-ready for people who don't like GNOME Shell, or companies who need something more "usual"
+ I didn't hear anything negative from Novell people about GNOME 3 so far. Maybe I'm not listening enough, though ;-)
(good timing, btw: I've started working on a gnome-shell package yesterday)
