Why do people always pick examples of features with easy user interface when the
fact with selinux is that the user interface is totally incomprehensible for the
ordinary home user. I for one disable selinux because I don't want to waste time
with learning how to use it. And I have now used red hat/fedora since 2002
without loosing one single e-mail or have suffered from any of the horrors that
some believe I am risking.
I don't debate the functionality of selinux just the difficulty in using it and
the apparent lack of relevance.
