Completely wrong. As a former SUSE employee I believe that I know the numbers better than you do. And although I have always been sceptical in regard to what any company I've worked for has told me I have no reasons not to believe in those numbers. The truth is that SUSE Professional has been incredible popular in Germany so far (much more so than the SUSE Personal. SUSE Personal with its low price was just introduced to make the potential customers feel easier about buying the SUSE Professional Version. Still it has been heavily discussed inside SUSE to drop the Personal Edition since it was introduced).
Believe it or not - the SUSE Professional has always been the major source of income for SUSE since years.
The SUSE Linux (Enterprise) Desktop on the other hand has never been anywhere near as successful. And therefore it remains to be seen whether it's follow-up product will surpass the SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop significantly.

Really, if you doubt the success of the SUSE Linux Professional just come to Germany and watch the huge amount of stores selling those SUSE Professional boxes.
