I am not sure if this is the best place to share things like these.
I seriously spent hours entertained with the original post included in the following blog. Here it goes:

static annoyance rant(sys32Jokes)
{
Rant * rage = "I can't stand these jokes. I mean, they really, really, really annoy me. The delete function in the Operating System, that it uses to delete files/folders is located within System32, which means that you logically can't delete this folder (Are you able to eat your own head?). While it is possible to delete an OS, this is from an outside OS, or, if the delete function is held in a different section of memory than all of the other functions (I believe Linux has a set-up like this (correct me if I'm wrong)). That's it. Otherwise, it's completely impossible. So gah at these jokes!";
return rage;

Are you saying that you can't delete System32 unless you take all the relevant delete function files and move them elsewhere?

Nonetheless, I know not to fuck with Sys32. Some parts are okay to delete (but at one's own discretion). However, I know not to ever touch anything marked .dll

Somewhat. If the delete function is self-hosting on a different part of memory (i.e. non-OS/kernel dependent (or, kernel that contains function is in a different partition)), then yes. If you just move it to a different folder, then no. System32 contains your core folders, meaning once that's gone, your out of luck. So just moving to a different folder (as I'm pretty sure the File Manager is in System32), wouldn't change all that much.

Intriguing but simple to understand. Another example could happen to dual-booting. Based on the number of Operating Systems, there are x delete functions, each one for each OS. Dual-booting to the first OS will allow me to delete the System32 folder of the second OS and vice-versa.

This is why you can delete Windows in Linux, or can delete Windows from a Live CD/USB, etc.

Well you don't really delete Windows in Linux.. I mean you can, but you're better off just formatting the partition rather than taking the time to mount the drive and run an rm from there. But like you said cent, Linux's rm -rf / will only work until it deletes the files needed to run that command. But at that point, you're pretty fucked anyway. And a lot of distros take measures to help people from accidentally doing that. But as for windows, I didn't know exactly how it went about doing its business.
