I do.
Not either on my laptop or my desktop, cause I'm the only one who uses them.
But in my 24x7 server I do.

Nowdays security has become a very important issue we have to deal with, so if 
you're an advance user you'll have well known reasons to disable it if you're 
not, you'll not realise if SeLinux is or isn't running and you'll be little 
bit more well protected
