Well, if you had some type of elective "feedback program" upon
installation the user could join that would "help develop new
features" in OpenSUSE that would explain upfront what the program
does, I think it would get around most user concerns.

You could track KDE versus GNOME usage on systems with both by having
a logfile that shows each time KDE or GNOME processes were started on
each system, and sending the metrics from that.

It might be good to collect a variety of datapoints, not just what

who is running hypervisors/virtualization, what external repositories
they are using, etc.

I don't think that sending user information, no matter of what kind, back to
Novell is that popular among Linux users. And to be precise it would have to
be sent every time the user updates, since he might add/remove some DE. In
fact, if he starts with KDE and then installs Gnome but leaves KDE on the
computer, how would one know which one he uses?
