Fluke is common here too. They're generally recognizable without seeing the logo: they're basically all yellow and dark grey.

And brand name actually does matter - it's an indicator of expected quality, both in terms of performance and safety. Fluke are known to make good meters with clear displays, quick display update, good continuity test response, and that won't fail spectacularly. They're not the only people with a good reputation, of course; Amprobe are also good (recognizable by basically all being red and dark grey). The fact that Fluke and Amprobe are both part of the same group may have something to do with that (Tektronix and Keithley are also part of the group).

I believe part of the point of SELinux is that it approaches the problem from a direction of explicit permission rather than implicit. You explicitly have to say a program can do something, rather than the program just doing it because that's what it defaults to.

Also the people are responsible for installing/configuring the system and the people responsible for installing/configuring the software that runs on the system aren't always the same.

Probably. And I honestly don't give a shit if they do. The only thing I browse at work are work related sites. The only thing I care about is when the stupid firewall blocks me from getting to a site which I'm only trying to access for work reasons. Still, that does at least let me send sarcastic e-mails to IT.
