A good analysis.
The basic economic ignorance in the discussion and to some extent the article covering it is the common claim that big companies can afford higher prices than small companies.
In a free market, no company, no matter how large, can afford to pay $10 for $5 worth of stuff. So SLES is already being sold at its minimum price. To make the case that small businesses need a new SUSE product, you have to show that they need less product than the big guys, not that they need a lower price.
