Well of course you have to move in and around it using the strict mode! Do
you know who developed that? The NSA, and don't tell them I said anything,
but I don't trust those guys :)

Personally, I would not use SELinux on a desktop, I think that SELinux is
best suited for machines with static configurations that servers content
often to the open internet. So with that said, SELinux is best for DNS
servers, Mail servers, routers etc.

And the strict policy is too strict, often it thinks that booting is a
security violation!

See what I mean though? Most people don't like it, personally, I do NOT
endorse turning it on by default, I think that that is a bit crazy.
