I agree, but it is not what I (tried) to say.
I meant that the *lack* of run-levels might become one of the reasons
NetBSD *won't* get such a wide appeal, not that run-levels made
Linux popular :)

Now, listen carefully: I didn't say NetBSD won't be popular.

Nah, It's not that good an argument anyway. I suppose I will
have to live with NetBSD no matter how greek the rc is. :)
