I will add however that there does seem to be a large amount of commercial appliances using centos. Had an opensles been avaliable three or four years ago, would the situation be different today? Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

Susestudio is indeed nice, but for compaines that want to host their own build environments a self hosting distro based on sles would be nice as well.

That SUSE seems to have ceded the market for appliance server OS to Redhat/CentOS where an "OpenSLES" could provide some differentiation and superiority in the build system and various other aspects may be something that has been overlooked.
You do know that you can create a custom appliance OS from a choice of openSUSE 11.1, SLED 10 or 11 and also SLES 10 or 11 using the rather groovy susestudio.com?
As far as I'm aware there's a Novell support channel available for those organisations that need it.
Given that *nobody* else in the appliance server sphere has_anything_ like susestudio.com I'd hardly say this is a case of ceding the market ;)
