SELinux is not just for enterprises.  If you are the least bit concerned
about malicious code/data exploiting flaws in your browser, mail client,
irc client, etc, then you might want to consider SELinux.  See
http://www.nsa.gov/selinux/papers/inevitability/ and
http://www.nsa.gov/selinux/papers/ottawa01/index.html.

SELinux is also not just in Fedora; the kernel code is in the mainline
kernel, SELinux userland packages exist for Debian, Hardened Gentoo has
integrated SELinux, SuSE Linux 9.1 has a SELinux kernel and utilities
(but SELinux is disabled by default).  And then there is SEBSD, the port
to FreeBSD 5.
