that looks really good to many business.

Wait. Which SMBs are we talking about - the end-user or the
consultancy? I thought we were talking about the end-user. My company
doesn't sell or provide openSUSE to anyone - nor SLED/S for that matter.
We are an openSUSE user, we use openSUSE as our core platform for
servers and desktop.

I am taling about all Small-Medium Businesses. User, consultancy/resellars. The comments are what I have personally heard from many different people with regards to any Novell offering, right now. The biggest concern for any I have told that the lifetime is now only 18 months is very very bad. Tending towards having to find a different distro and they need longer support.

So back on topic. I am seeking to form a group of users that when joined form a group with $$$ behind them to gain attention from the upper Novell management to address the needs of SMB's.
