The OP's posting style is certainly entertaining, and he is to be congratulated and encouraged for that. But his basic point is valid. It is certainly within his rights to want the system to boot up directly into a usable state - like computers (e.g., Apple ][, C64, etc) did in the olden days.
On at least one of my systems, booting does take all the way into a GUI (X) login, with several windows running. It is implemented via some magic in /etc/inittab and some scripts.
I worked this out on my own (years ago), but it sounds (based on post #2 in this thread) that this functionality now comes "built-in" (just need to turn it on) in some distributions.
It certainly within anyone's right to have a network attached computer with no security, filled with viruses and to be part of a worldwide botnet! It's his human right!
I note your example also ends with a login prompt...
