Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "OpenSolaris has launched a new project, Flexible Mandatory Access Control, to integrate the Flask/TE security scheme into their OS. This is the same underlying model implemented by SELinux, and follows other cross-platform Flask/TE integration projects such as SEDarwin and SEBSD. This is very exciting in terms of establishing compatible security across operating systems, particularly for Mandatory Access Control, which has traditionally been narrowly focused and generally incompatible. With FMAC, we're closer to seeing truly ubiquitous, cross-platform MAC security."

like what? any technical faults?
The only bad things about SElinux I hear are due to difficulty in rule building which although isn't meant for a joe desktop user the new building tools should be easy enough for a system admin to learn.
Mainly im trying to see what advantages this has over the current system.
