Linode and Vultr no longer disables SELinux by default

One of Fedora’s differentiating features compared to other Linux distributions is its well-maintained and low-friction default SELinux policy set. The two virtual private server (VPS) hosting providers Linode and Vultr have been offering server instances of Fedora Server with Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) enforcement disabled by default. New instances deployed with Fedora Server 27 now enable SELinux in enforcing mode by default; aligning them to the upstream Fedora defaults.
