The first version of Magento 2 was released 2 years ago! Many modules were made in this period, but there could have been more if everybody was using Mage2Gen. If you are not using Mage2Gen you now should take this change to save time and create more modules!
Sometimes you want to load a Module at the end of the sort order. In Magento 1 this could be done by changing the Vendor and/or Module name for the alphabetical order.
