The password is a Linux equivalent of Windows' super-annoying UAC feces prompt (which I disable during the initial OS setup). However, having to enter a sudo password occurs less frequently for me than the annoying UAC prompt in Windows. Plus, I use an extremely insecure 4-digit password (all 4 digits are the same) because I don't care about security. So, I can strike the same key 4 times a lot faster for a sudo password than I can dismiss UAC's nag-o-rama pop-up nonsense. Other than some of my Windows software not having a functional equivalent on Linux, I find Linux to be a far more robust, configurable, pleasant and aesthetically appealing OS than Windows 10. The jury is still out, but it is not looking promising that I will be willing to make any concessions for Windows 11's functional inadequacies and aesthetic atrocities. So far, it seems like Windows 11 is on the fast track to become Micro$lop's 21st Century failure equivalent of Windows ME. They had already pretty well screwed the pooch with 20H2 and 21H1 functionality downgrades, and Windows 11 may be the final nail in the Windoze coffin for me.
