Is it really that hard to run update-rc.d after you edit a config file? OpenBSD asks if X should run by default when you install the system. On top of that, the default firewall rules explicitly block traffic to X. It's quite different in fact. Policy? Well thank heavens for that...I guess I should run Ubuntu on all of my critical infrastructure...their policy will protect me.
