there is however a difference here
some people want packages that are maintained for a significant time period
some people want a version that a third party will support their software on
other people want a tech support number they can call if they have problems
CentOS or OpenSLES cater to the people who want one or both of the first two, but are willing to do without the last

Ah, so that's my point. The customers of these vs the customers for the full price versions don't differ in that one can afford to pay more than the other, but that one can use more service than the other. Assuming we're talking about businesses, "willing to do without" means "has less expensive alternatives."
