I'm bothered by that comment. Since when is Fedora a "box" ? i thought
it was more of a platform to build on (ok, more like: a luxury house
around which you can build yourself a nice garden :-) ).
Here's my use scenario. I have a Zonbu here at home that I use as a
"courtesy" system in my living room. That is, when I have visiting
friends or relatives, they can use the system to check their email and
such. Because the zonbu is so low-power and quiet, it's almost always on
and the user logged in. Gdm is configured to autologin a guest user here.
The zonbu is also connected to my stereo system, which i can hear from
my office. So i will often ssh into the zonbu and play an mp3 from the
wireless-mounted NFS directory. Now PA means i have to log in as the
same guest user, which is not necessarily ideal because of the nfs mount
permissions, but certainly workable. Now of course i can just disable PA
in this case and be happy. But you were asking for a specific scenario.
