Now that would make sense and I am thinking of those new to the Linux experience... it can be all so daunting and easy to slip up on good admin practice. On one hand we're trying to push Linux out to the masses but we don't have clarity (for the newbie / casual user) on what is good practice! I think part of the solution in Ubuntu would be a user friendly firewall by default with sensible settings. And perhaps a beginners guide on where to install from (this ain't windows - stick to the repos and you will be safe).
