I find this conclusion to be rather odd. There are plenty of files in the
/etc directory on all my RedHat systems which are only readable by root,
the most notable being /etc/shadow. Have you encountered real-world cases
of users/admins changing the permissions on /etc/smbpasswd after it has
been properly installed root-only, or are you extrapolating based on what
you know of the intelligence of the average RedHat user? ;)
I think Luke does have a point. The thing with Redhat is that it is made
so goons can install it (please note that I am not saying that all ppl
who use redhat are goons, I use it myself sometimes :). This generally
means that mostly goons do install redhat.
What I am trying to say is that redhat by default should encourage good
administration for first time *nix users.
The bland leadeth the bland and they
both shall fall into the kitsch.
