Why? If you have just one operating system installed, you can just
your machine anyway and don't have to reboot the machine at all.

You need to reboot for updates/upgrades (which in case of Tumbleweed are
just like updates ;) ) If I didn't restart as much as I do, I wouldn't
be suggesting this change :P

Why don't you just hide GRUB and/or set the timeout to 0? Zero patches,
zero wait.

You will have to remember the sequence to interrupt it for those odd
times you want to pass flags to the kernel, rollback etc. - and be
quick-on-the-draw :)

I've found a 1 second timeout is a happy medium, and doesn't detract
from the normal/fast boot sequence for family I've transitioned.
