Any time I want to install something or configure something or add
something or delete something, I don't have to be concerned about who it
belongs to or whether I need to "sudo" or not before I can do what I
want to do.

I do all of my file managing with emelfm in X, with the exception of the
occasional symlink.

Just like when I was using Windows only, I'm willing to take
responsibility for my actions and suffer the consequences if I do
something stupid.
