Windows "Windows is indeed slower than other operating systems in many scenarios, and the gap is worsening." That's one way to start an insider explanation of why Windows' performance isn't up to snuff. Written by someone who actually contributes code to the Windows NT kernel, the comment on Hacker News, later deleted but reposted with permission on Marc Bevand's blog, paints a very dreary picture of the state of Windows development. The root issue? Think of how Linux is developed, and you'll know the answer.

Run levels are a defined standard, Debian simply ignored them - many will say you can create similar functionality, but you can create similar via targets in systemd, this doesn't mean it follows the standard.

They don't really "ignore" them.

There is also the issue of using dash for /bin/sh which results in some oddities.

That's a good point. I had forgotten they did that after Lenny. bash is the default "interactive" shell.
