    http://fossforce.com/2011/09/top-10-runlevels-for-windows-8/

    So, here it is, our list of the top 10 runlevels for Windows 8….

    Reboot. It’s predicted this will be the most used runlevel in Windows.
    Big Brother Mode. We can’t find anything about this because the information is classified and requires clearance from either Homeland Security or the Chinese government.
    Pre-Infected Mode. Why wait for a drive-by attack. Go ahead and get it over with. Offer your machine as a bot to the Russian mob.
    Reliable & Secure Mode. For enterprise users with really mission critical applications. Secretly boots system to a Linux kernel and runs the Windows 8 desktop using X. All Windows apps load via WINE.
    Normal GUI mode. Big, fat, gooey mode.
    Mobile Mode. Otherwise known as Windows Mobile 8. The entire Windows 8 OS is still loaded onto the cell phone, so even if there was an app for that, you wouldn’t have room for it.
    Command Line Mode. Oh, come on. No Windows user has known how to use the command line since version 3x.
    So-You’re-Thinking-of-not-Renewing-Your-Service-Contract Mode. Activated when an enterprise customer indicates they might take their support business to a third party vendor who is not a Microsoft partner. How many blue screens and reboots can your company take per day?
    Safe Mode. Runs a barely functioning, crippled version of the OS so you can attempt to figure out what the frack went wrong now.
    Halt. Shuts system down, allowing user to boot to a Linux live CD in order to wipe the hard drive and install a real operating system.

    I think an article like this is funny as long as you realize it's a complete joke... anyone who takes it seriously needs to go get a shave.

    The very icon for those caring to look indicates the humorous nature of it, except for M$ fanboys who are always so hyper sensitive, maybe due to the Hyper V feature in Windows ;)

    Which is why I said it's a joke, of course.

    I have noooo clue why you think I'm a fanboy let alone a Microsoft fanboy.

    I wonder if it's possible to discuss the various operating systems on a higher level? This is clearly not that level.

    In what way?

    I doubt that is is much for discussion, just some light humor.

    If you want to discuss, say, Ubuntu and Windows in terms of security or something make a topic and I'll definitely post in it.

    Thats exactly the purpose of this post, unfortunately MS luvers don't see that point. My question to them is I or most Linux users here never ever bother posting in MS threads, why are MS users hovering here like flies, gotta be some malintent for sure.

    I like to keep up on linux news/ security. Even moreso than Windows security since if a feature is in linux it's sometimes a while before it its another OS.

    Hmm, maybe they post here because it's a free forum? ;) Yeah, us Windows guys and girls would rather see Tux burnt at the stake and are only here to cause trouble :rolleyes: Hopefully you're a bit more mature than to have conspiracy theories like that. But see, the statements you made in that post are the exact reason many call out Linux users for being elitist. This isn't your forum, it's everyone's. I read the Unix forum often, because, as I said, I'm not in love with an OS, and I happen to find Linux interesting.

    Now, hop along, Tux almost has your dinner done :D :p

    There are many good 3rd party equivalents for app armor like utilities for Windows.

    Thank you! I hate it if fanboys (linux or windows) just bash eachother instead of discussing. These posts are just to troll.

    Yes, the difference being that with Linux AppArmor gets compiled into the kernel.

    You are aware how much against that MS is, even anti rootkits weren't viable due to patchguard in MS x64 kernels.

    Patchguard itself is anti-rootkit.

    But I'm not sure what you're trying to say. You could never compile software into the kernel ever with windows, pre patchguard even because it's not open source.

    Exactly my point, MS wouldn't allow anything external into its kernel period.
