Noticed some unnecessary services for a desktop. When I started the shutdown process, I saw apache2 being shutdown. That I know of, this isn't included on stock Ubuntu for desktop at all.

I kind of tried to imitate the thing that mac had going for them as far as including everything in one distro, how ever it might help (efficient wise and security wise) if it is disable by default and have a simple graphical script to allow the user to enable it if they decide to use a web server (or any other server since webmin is also installed). that will be changed, thank you!

ok, so to clarify a bit, the apache web server by default is now disabled by default. Webmin has also been setup to only listen to connections coming from 127.0.0.1 (so as to not allow any one to remotely access the computer in any way; since version 2.5) and also so that if the user would like to start a web server they can either go to on their web browser (https://127.0.0.1:10000) or use a simple gui script to enable the web server if they so chose.

Can you help with this problem?
