To add onto that, the 3 lone pairs of electrons around the central atom are arranged in a way where the electron repulsion, in a sense, cancels each other out. There is a force pushing from one side and a force pushing from the other side in order to produce a linear molecule with a bond angle of 180 degrees. But yeah the form AX2E3 is linear. A model with VSPER formula AX2E4 is also considered linear but we probably won't have to deal with that one.
