Why can't I create a superuser login? Why do I have to use a third party? What are your quality standards? Why can't I comment?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.
You can create a Super User login. What you'll get is an OpenID created by Stack Exchange, the owners of Super User. So this isn't really a third party option.
You can also choose third party OpenID providers such as Google, Facebook or Yahoo!
Explaining everything that applies here would take a while, but to summarize in a few bullet points:
Because you need 50 reputation to be able to do so.
http://superuser.com/faq has some of the answers you seek. (The last 2, to be specific.)
About openID... it's much more convenient to have one login for everything, rather than lots and lots for every site, don't you think? You can make an account on Stack Exchange, that's the closest thing to a SU account and bonus, it'll work if you get a question migrated to another SE site!
