It does seem pretty odd - why do I have to explicitly enable ssh

To anyone with more than one box, sshd is a must - to anyone with
only one box, it doesn't do any harm.


Most likely because your average desktop user doesn't need it. And
people who need it can easily enable it. Minimize surface attack area
and all that.

My opinion - not a very good reasoning.

On a related note, is postfix still enabled by default in 11.2?

Yes, it is.
