SuSE configured the users UIDs to start on 500 some years ago. Then _they_
changed the default to start at 1000. So installs made on different years
are different.

Since first encountering this several years ago I've never let any non-ubuntu
installer create normal users. After install is done I create group 1000
manually, then create users with a script that sets specific gid and uid for
each desired user.

I agree. But if you try to create users with a UID of 500 in SUSE you get a warning, because UIDs that "low" are reserved for the system. However, 500 was the default some years back.
