It's deffo no too late. I've tested the latest SuSE release for a few weeks, and I was really impressed. They did large cuts on what gets installedd in the default install, and it was quite fast too. Sane defaults and all.

Other than that, SuSE still has things that (K)Ubuntu can only dream of: decent system management tools (YaST) and a complete graphical boot/shutdown.

Graphical boot? Come on, that does not improve useability at all. Maybe if you said a faster boot. And last time I checked, SuSE's graphical boot was done in kernel space using a modified boot splash. The Ubuntu people will be doing this right, completely in user space.
