Why does it come turned off?
Most obviously, it could interfere with first time users and they would not find it in the first place.
And it's Mac OS X, it does not really need one.
Do you keep yours turned off?
As it seems not, but only on my iMac. My MacBook and MacBook Pro have their firewall turned off, and my iBook also had its firewall off.
i imagine it's as a lot of new apple users are now moving over from windows where the firewall causes nothing but problems and like someone said in a previous post, the firewall is not as crucial in an OS X environment, especially if used behind a router.
just a guess though, i don't ever turn mine on.
Because you really don't need it right away.
I still have mine turned off.
For someone who just got a new computer, it would be annoying setting up a internet connection, the firewall may block a lot of things.
