Operating system: *has a custom console scheme*
The entire linux Fandom:
BLOOOOOAT

If all office suites named themselves like WPS Office:
Libre/OpenOffice: WIC Office
MS Office: WPX Office
GNOME Office: AEG Office
CalligraSuite: WSS Office
iWork: PKN Office
Google Docs: DSS Office
OnlyOffice: DPS Office

Major pet peeve:
When proprietary software has the word "Free" (when it is not clear that it means gratis) or "Open" in it

W = Whole bunch of
P = Proprietary
S = Software

WE HAVE A WINNER!

🥈 Linux Mint :linuxmint:
🥉 Manjaro :manjaro:

Why I think openSUSE is trash:
1. It takes TWO HOURS to install on a VM
2. Only the root user can shut down the system fsr
3. sudo is useless. What is the purpose of the sudo command on openSUSE if the you need to put in the root password? Might as well use su
4. It needs to reach the target "Shutdown" 20 times before it ACTUALLY turns off (that might just be a systemd error tho)

What do you use to switch into the root account?
