Re: [opensuse-project] Balsam Professional & Balsam Enterprise

So the only purpose of an "openSLES" (or "Balsam Enterprise") is
to hurt Novell by taking revenue from Novell.

If someone knows of a different purpose, I'd love to hear about
it.

Dude, it's called competitive market. Business is not a charity.
Novell chose to bet a large part of its business on GPL software and it's
absolutely
legally as well as morally OK for a competitor to take the sources, repackage
them, and
sell services cheaper.

Ironically, what you condemn is also done by Novell: Novell also sells support
services
for RHEL in a move "to hurt Red Hat by taking revenue from Red Hat".
