Security always comes at the price of userfriendlyness. If you have a system 
that is used for development, as a desktop or a test machine I've not found 
much use for it either. If you on the other hand run a system as a server 
with a workload that does not change often (i.e. running the same app over 
and over again by different users) it gives you an additional layer of 
security.
