Sebas, I don't want to explain you the contract that open-SLX and Novell
had but I have to step in and clarify things.

The trademark guidelines mention that you can ask for an exception. Also,
there are contracts that allow the usage of the trademark, so there was
really no reason for open-SLX to rename.

You ship with openSUSE 11.4 the DVD9 as it comes out of the obs together
with an extra DVD - and that combination is something open-SLX was allowed
to call openSUSE 11.4,
