Default I'd like some real info on motor oil please

Since technology changes almost on a daily basis, I see not just conventional motor oil anymore. Now there's Amsoil, purple oil, synthetic, regular, etc.

To me oil is oil....regardless of thickness and thinness....made for winter and summer.

So....I'd like to see someone offer a chart that states its purpose(if there is one) and describe what it's supposed to do.

a friend of mine put over a million miles on his work pickup by changing the conventional oil every 6k but he would change the oil filter every 3k. he swears by this method and does it with all of his vehicles.

The Bimmer gets Mobile 1 every 10k miles.

Pulled motor at 135k to replace seals and gaskets, and this is how clean it was before hot tanking.
