Really only relevant because sudo is called-out by name... Why Linux
sucks as a desktop OS...

Real article:


OB Sudo:

12. Bad security model: there's zero protection against keyboard
    keyloggers and against running malicious software (Linux is viruses
    free only due to its extremely low popularity). sudo is very easy
    to circumvent (social engineering). sudo still requires CLI (see
    clause 4.). 


4. It should be possible to configure *everything* via GUI which is
   still not a case for too many situations and operations.
