GPL and the Linux Community

Recent events and the news coverage have been so derogatory towards Novell and I do not see SUSE in the way the Linux Community sees it. One has to think about the whole picture not just the small slice of the pie Novellís revenues is up and SLES is a solid robust operating system built for the Enterprise and SLED a first class OS for the desktop. If anything Microsoft make SUSE Linux legitimate by listening to the customer stating they want both solutions in the Enterprise. It would be nice if the rhetoric would cease because it does not help the case of free software it hampers it by creating tension and strife. There is plenty of room in the market place and Linux is not going away no matter what this situation brings out.
