Might sound a bit emotional, but the "parse-metadata" problem turns 10.1
into a virtually unusable desktop for my customers (and me) really. In
certain server setups it might be acceptable that the system needs up to
30 minutes after reboot before giving full power to the users. But on a
desktop?

As a workaround i'd suggest to disable zmd and configure smart. It's quite fast and doesn't take 5 minutes to wake up some background daemon just to search for a package. (Packages smart and smart-gui are on the OpenSUSE CDs).

You'll lose that little update icon on your desktop - which means you should do 'smart update' occasionally.

Together with a little restriction on beagle (as suggested by others on this list) you should get a pretty speedy SUSE Experience.
