Which is silly and pointless, but I guess this is not the right place to
complain and the ship has sailed since everyone does this now. ;(
I find sudo silly and pointless. Merely typing sudo to prefix every
command does literally nothing but increase carpal tunnel syndrome.
Every stupid mistake I've ever made, I've made with sudo in duplicate
compared to just being root and not typing sudo for every damn
command. What I do like about sudo is every command is logged to the
journal, and with sealing enabled it's tamper proof. So why not have
'sudo -i' put me in a logged root shell?
