I think it's a horrible ``lose.''  Redhat has done a terrible job with
SE Linux, and is giving everyone a sour taste about it.  It's the
default, but it's not easily configurable, and the documentation is
poor.  When people have random problems, it takes them hours to track
them down to SE Linux, especially since Redhat hasn't provided any good
troubleshooting documentation.  If Redhat wants SE Linux to become an
everyday swear word, they should just keep trudging down their current

(there's a tiny bit of hyperbole in there, but Redhat really has done a
bad job)
