And…? This isn’t true of which OS? Yes, if you can access
the hard disk from another OS that ignores its permissions
and such you can wreak havoc. This is why evaluated systems
require physical security as well as software security.

logic kicks ass:
(1) Horses have an even number of legs.
(2) They have two legs in back and fore legs in front.
(3) This makes a total of six legs, which certainly is an odd
number of
legs for a horse.
(4) But the only number that is both odd and even is infinity.
(5) Therefore, horses must have an infinite number of legs.
