OpenSees or Sap2000 or Abaqus?

OpenSees or Sap2000 or Abaqus?

I have recently started to use OpenSees (currently I am still a beginner). I have two questions for your:
-besides the obvious advantages in cost and automation (especially useful for parametric studies), are there other advantages of OpenSEES compared to Sap2000, in terms of modeling and analysis? In other words, is there anything I can do in OpenSees that I can't do in Sap2000?
- where does OpenSEES stand compared to Abaqus? (I have never used Abaqus)
