    Red Hat has undoubtedly done more to make SELinux usable than any other organization, but has it actually reached the point where it can be enabled by default for all desktops? The Fedora project clearly thinks so. Not only is SELinux enabled, but the installer no longer has an option to disable it or to put it into "permissive" mode. Most of the posts in a thread on the fedora-devel mailing list see that as the right choice, but some are not so sure. This article looks at how SELinux is working on the Fedora desktop. It brings up a interesting question on how useful is SELinux on a Linux Desktop? What do you think?
