Because it's off by default in the upstream synaptics driver and Fedora does 
not change that setting. And IMHO it's off by default for a reason; I don't 
understand why people want that annoying "feature" at all. I always 
accidentally click when trying to move the mouse pointer using a touchpad 
with tapping enabled. And any remotely decent touchpad has separate buttons 
to use.
