I have to say, it appears that my experiences with SELinux have been
much different from yours. I must admit however, that I do not run
SELinux on my desktops, maybe that's the issue -- I don't connect my
desktop directly to the internet either however, nor do I store that
much data on them.

Have you considered the possibility of a large silent majority for
whom it works most of the time and so need not complain? Not that
valid complaints are a bad thing.
