Sudo was just an example, my original argument was that I hate having to go to the terminal to do anything. I only use Linux for cross-platform development and the Grub 2 bootloader that comes with Ubuntu.
I hate Microsoft because they've monopolized the computer industry, killing (not just making it hard for) competitors. Additionally, they are thieves, liars, have no taste in style, like to restrict their users, and use their money to silence people.
I also hate Apple because (like Microsoft) they are thieves and liars. They also over-charge for their computers and take credit for other people's work and then point fingers at Microsoft.
I tried going all Linux before, but eventually built up a list of things that really bothered me.
- Having to go to the terminal or type my password to do anything
- I have a Sandy Bridge Intel HD Graphics card, so I don't get hardware acceleration. On Windows, I can run Skyrim on the highest settings with very little lag and on the lowest settings with no lag, yet I can barely emulate an N64 game in Linux.
- There weren't any Linux ports of some of the applications I commonly used and some of them couldn't run in WINE.
- Several times, when I tried to install .deb's or .rpm's, the dependencies were broken and I'd have to google them. A lot of the packages are hard to find, and some have several distros so I was often confused about which ones I should get.
