Why does it matter if another Linux distro uses this? This is
openSUSE, you've got a clean slate to do whatever you want to improve
the user experience.

Because if another distro had done something like that already, there would be
some data about its usefulness or scope of acceptance etc.

There is huge value in statistics gathering. Otherwise you are running
blind without having a true picture of what your user community is
doing. Microsoft used user statistics to great advantage from Vista
when developing Windows 7. As does Apple when developing Mac OS X
versions.

I'm pretty sure MS used statistics and usability measurements when creating
Vista or XP as well. And it's not like there are no statistics at all for
openSUSE.
