heh. at least in the case of KDE, you have it backwards. SUSE does not own nor control KDE, but they do contribute to it.

just because SUSE bases the desktop side of their distro around KDE doesn't make "KDE coders defacto SUSE employees". with open source, you can use something and even contribute to it without owning it.

or are we all defacto Linspire employees? mandriva employees? xandros employees? kanotix employees? knoppix employees? ark employees? kubuntu employees?

we certainly help all of them, but that's highly different than "working for" them.
