The idea is that at least you are starting with a secure base, and do not have to take action in order to make it secure. This differs from other OS's where a fresh install is not secure at all unless the administrator does *something* first. Ex: Windows 2003 requires a ton of patches after an initial install (along with turning off extra services) as the first step towards a secure system.
