Come be a part of the project that feeds into Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise
I still think than the word "feed" is ambiguous. Who eats the other? remember the movie "we feed the world" (this title means more "we eat the world" than "we give food to the world")
may be only
the project used by Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise
but I think all this may be counter productive.
I work on an opensource project, I don't want to work for free for Novell. Any word saying that the free work will be used by a comercial product may be misunderstood.
Use by comercials of opensource projects is autorized, but not so popular against the opensource community. I remember problems with sites making copies of OpenOffice.org...
secondly, the very significance of the sentence seems odd.
it seems to say "you already know that Novells suse linux... is the best product ever, so you can trust openSUSE.
sorry, but this is stupid. Any Novells customer glad with it (and I expect many are) will... keep Novell products, why switch to openSUSE?
and nearly No non Novell customer know anything of SLES/SLED.
I would be much more usefull to say "The users of the world best Linux distro, openSUSE can have even more, a professional support and 7 years updates using the Novell openSUSE version, SLES/SLED".
Much more people know openSUSE than Novell SLES/SLED...
