If SELinux was transparently working (Which it doesn't on Fedora on many

Pretty much every security solution has had a history of such problems.
Well, then better acknowledge these facts and stop reiterating RH's
marketing slogans.

I have never disagreed that there are problems and you need to stop the usual adhominem attacks to maintain a rational discussion.

If SELinux was such an "terrific and compelling approach", upstream
Linux and other distros would have adopted it _years ago_ with standing
ovations - Fact is: Nobody did.

Note that contrary to your claims upstream has adopted it even before the first 2.6 kernel release and many other distributions are in-fact adopting it as you have agreed with the example of Debian earlier in this thread. Popularity doesn't determine the best choices. Otherwise we would be all running Windows now.
