Novell and Ximian We were well aware that Novell had put itself on the market, coyly winking at passers-by, displaying its... Assets.

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.

Maybe some ex and soon-to-be ex Suse employees will be able to rewind the clock seven years and do something useful with it?
