Hmm, Interesting point.
Well the fact is that they may or may not release there software opensource. They released a commercial product to a group of opensource developers for free. That does sound like an opensource frendly commercial company. They decided to help when there were no other alternatives (aside from cvs of course).
As far as Novel, perhaps you have not been reading but they have released a lot of tech from both Suse and Ximian that were originally closed source. So they are releasing. Perhaps not as quick as you would like but Novel was a completely closed company and Suse was open source yet suse ended up with closed source tech that was later released by Novel. So positions are changing.
