When I say Debian has "two runlevels" I mean two "run" (continuously running) 
levels, and don't count halt or reboot as run, leaving Debian with only two 
"run" levels by default, single vs. everything. I never found any convenient 
+ universal way to customize Debian runlevels, and since I have many systems 
to deal with, I prefer distros with more operational segregation by default, 
which is a distinction of most non-Debians. I don't like that to have 
multiuser with networking to have X also defaulted. It makes X repair when 
necessary more complicated, particularly to describe to someone needing 
generic X repair help.
