He compared SLES9 with Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES, not with Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS, since they are price comparable. Your platform support list is from AS.
Concerning the list of supported packages, everybody needs to look himself if the respective list fits him. IMNSHO, this is not important at all in the end -- important is the quality of the local support staff that is assigned to your cases. I choose a distribution over another one anytime by that criteria.
Btw, I have an EMC engineer sitting in the room next to me who supports SLES9 on an Opteron HPC cluster by HP. He will happily support RHEL, too. But admittedly, this is an important customer for EMC, not your run-of-the-mill job.
