The Wikipedia article at:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AppArmor

Says in part:
Quote:
AppArmor is offered in part as an alternative to SELinux, which critics consider difficult for administrators to set up and maintain.[1] Unlike SELinux, which is based on applying labels to files, AppArmor works with file paths. Proponents of AppArmor claim that it is less complex and easier for the average user to learn than SELinux.[2] They also claim that AppArmor requires fewer modifications to work with existing systems:[citation needed] for example, SELinux requires a filesystem that supports "security labels", and thus cannot provide access control for files mounted via NFS. AppArmor is filesystem-agnostic.
This is religion just like "vi" vs "emacs". (Even though every right thinking person KNOWS vi is the way to go. )
