exactly, I am a geek, I do NOT want my operating system to hold my hand, second guess me, or limit my options

Yes but, ...
geeks are equipped,(odd spelling) but users are not.
Gnu/Linux users have a heads up but its a big ask to go from windross to Debian, or whatever, the user convenience is not the same. Then it is, of course, about convenience.
I want to control my os but I don't want to spend a huge amount of time configuring it but I can live with a compromise and I think GNU/Linux largely provides that.

If you research the GUI program (called Disks) that you used, you will find that often it does not function the way it is supposed to...
