Yast: yet another setup tool. [I dislike it]
This one tool made all the difference to me. Everything else: gui, menus, are also altered but can be changed.
Oh, and SLED [SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop] requires payment yearly for updates.
Just read up on YAST.

They might not have sudo installed (or does SUSE come with it?)
Also, I think SUSE is primarily a user of the .rpm packages, not the .deb packages. As I'm assuming you won't be messing around with their packages, this shouldn't be an issue.

If they use it as a server, you most likely will be using the command line I'm assuming. If that's the case, the biggest differences will be the use of zypper/rpm instead of the Debian tools. Also some configuration files will be in different locations.

true you may wish to devour some info on Yum (yellowdog updater, modified)
[sorry, that was really lame]
