Novell and Ximian We were well aware that Novell had put itself on the market, coyly winking at passers-by, displaying its... Assets. VMware was a contender, but things have played out entirely different: Novell has been bought by Attachmate Corp., with a Microsoft-led consortium buying unspecified intellectual property from Novell.

"I can find no reference as to what happens to OpenSuSe.
Will be spun off: http://www.desktoplinux.com/news/NS7620954743.html "

The article you linked says that SLED will be spun off, but it has only this to say about OpenSuSe:
Among the many questions surrounding the deal is what will happen with Novell-back projects such as OpenSUSE, which maintains a popular, open source desktop distro and upstream contributor to SLE. The community-driven OpenSUSE Project is also preparing a MeeGo version of the distro.


SuSe (a.k.a SLED) <> OpenSuSe.
