It starts to get annoying not to be able to open simple files (any file) using
File Manager Super User Mode. Yes there exists a few workarounds, but I have
found that these workarounds are not perfect replacements.

For example, if you browse from File Manager in your root partition and then
want to open a root text file, you need to use Single User mode file manager
and install a Root Service Menu. Fine there. But there exist some folders
(especially in /var) you cannot even access with Single User Mode file manager,
so you need Super User just to browse the folders. But Super User does not have
the Root Service Menu and cannot open files! So you end up installing the Root
Service Menu for... Root User! Or doing everything from command line, which
takes the graphical user out of its "natural" world.
