I'm not sure where you get off saying that he is not using his computer.

Perhaps he doesn't use his computer with SELinux off, GUI as root,
build/compile software as root or do many of the things that you do to
circumvent security conventions but I wouldn't recommend your patterns
of usage as a model to be followed.

I don't use heyu or kino but I do have SELinux activated on virtually
every system that I use because that is the only way I can learn to live
with it....and *** I use my computer *** In fact, I have 8 desktops
presently running 7 different applications and a number of shell windows
too of which none belong to root.

SELinux is not a big deal and hope that if (or perhaps when) the time
comes that it would prove useful to me, it will save my backside.
