If you are not running a network, then there is no point having all the NFS
stuff loaded, so I would in that case choose a runlevel that didn't have
It's actually handy during debugging, too.
If you are trying different window managers or other configuration things,
you probably don't want to switch on X automatically.
There are other benefits to runlevels such as quick remote shutdowns
# init 0
.. or quick remote reboots
# init 6
Don't think in terms of a desktop PC, rather think of something that has to
a laptop, a desktop, a cluster, a network, a headless remote rack of
things... so that's why I think the runlevels should be "harmonised" (as the
CCITT used to say).

i'm curious: does anyone actually use different runlevels?
