 I've found a 1 second timeout is a happy medium, and doesn't detract

 Eh, I guess I should have better explained it, GRUB requires graphical
 mode to be loaded before Linux is initialized, which causes needless
 flickering and such. Not loading GRUB at all for users and usecases
 where they don't need it would be a great solution in that case.

Uninstall plymouth.

That's unrelated, besides, we ship plymouth to make the distribution
look halfway decent. You are free to uninstall it yourself though,
plymouth is here to stay as the default as SUSE has decided to not
develop kernel backed bootsplash.

Sorry. I always remove it on all my installs as unnecessary bloat. When
I decided to do so, it accounted for half the size of the initrd image,
besides causing issues. Me, I consider the flow of kernel text messages
as it boots beautiful - but hey, that's me :-)

I'd like to add that normal users, like all my non-IT friends I setup
Tumbleweed laptops for, do not care at all about how booting looks like
(flickering, text messages or not, whatever). They are not looking at
this. They just want their daily stuff to work after login. That's all.

Ciao, Michael.
