This should be really nice. It needs to have speed. Fast boot time like
in Ubuntu or Fedora would REALLY be nice. Also, speed up most of the
applications including YaST and Update manager. On,
they put up that openSUSE is slow and bloated sometimes(resource heavy
YaST or other openSUSE-Specific apps.)

For the replacement of SysV-Init it is too early, the Linux and Unix
industry should define a standard before. At the moment the relativly
slow SysV init is only of the common things in most Unix and Linux
distributions (excluding Ubuntu and Solaris 10).
Fast boot time is not realy a measure to decide how good or bad a
distribution is. On my desktop, the POST takes longer than the rest of
boot process (to the console, runlevel 3). Maybe BIOS manufacturers
should be questioned about this.
YaST: It is just a front end for different tools. If you dont like
YaST's performance use zypper, rpm and vi as more performant and
lightwight options.
