Exactly what strategic cleverness does it take to release something that many other people already have, where your success is based on you being the biggest company in the room?

It's just enough to keep their loyal customers and make more money from them. They know most of their customers prefer new things simplified before being added. That's how Apple does it. It isn't for everyone (including me) but it works for them.

Spoken like a loyal subject.

The issue isn't how easy it is to undo it. The issue is that you have to take action at all. Apple is taking advantage of a default setting in a way the user never thought it was intended.

You sound just like some of the people in the early days of the spam wars "just delete it". Everyone knows that doesn't work and the problem only gets worse in the long run.

"More importantly everybody knows Mac OS X needs multiple gigabytes free as memory swap space on it's startup disk. The general recommendation is 15% of the drive"

Emphasis mine

They may be lying but you are also being dishonest claiming that EVERYONE knows OS X needs 15% free space. I'm sure the number of people that know it is much closer to "No one" than "Everyone"

The library doesn't have unlimited porn, social media, music, etc etc but that is what the majority of the students are using the network for at the school. There isn't nearly as much "personal research" going on in a library as there is on the Internet.

I'm not saying network access should be restricted. I'm just saying let's be honest about how it is being used.
