Those are separate issues.

Fedora is an edge distribution that drives Linux development in ways
that few other distributions can. 

RHEL (and it's various derivatives) definitely use SELinux and I find
that like all other technologies, I begin to grasp how they work over
time so the more I am exposed to the care and feeding, the more I
understand.

Other distributions - some of them have them but their adoption is
miniscule because it's not mandatory.

Security always seems to mean that you have to endure the learning curve
in order to implement. SELinux...yeah, it's like that.
