openSUSE Welcome is a utility that as its name implies, welcomes
people to openSUSE. There's not really much more to it, but here's a
rundown of everything it offers.

I like it :)

- Welcome Screen - Welcomes people with fancy graphics, links to
information, and a news blurb. You can disable it on startup here.
- Desktop Environment Help/Information Button - If openSUSE Welcome
can detect your desktop environment, it'll offer a button to launch
its help utility or open its wiki.
- Show on Next Startup - Because you don't want to be welcomed for the
fourteenth time this day.

IMHO for that reason the default for the tickbox to show it next
time should be "off"

If any DE maintainers want to test it on their DEs, that would be
appreciated. Currently, I've tested it on the following:

- Plasma [XOrg]
- Xfce
- GNOME [XOrg]
- IceWM
