Does anyone have a procedure for using machinery to migrate from CentOS to openSUSE ?
I think you misspelled SUSE Linux Enterprise Server with Expanded Support.
There is no money moving anyone to openSUSE - we do have a continuation option for those users that NEED the same codebase as RHEL8, and that is with Expanded Support.
We should get people to use openSUSE, or else they will use CentOS or Ubuntu. People who use openSUSE might consider buying SLES, people who use CentOS or Ubuntu most probably would not buy SLES.
Rancher has a large user base running their products for free because there is no liability to pay. But many of Rancher's payed customers are from their free users, when they are happy with the product and need support. Similarly we need more free openSUSE users, they will come to pay SLES when they really need.
