Why does Chakra not start certain services (e.g. CUPS or a firewall) by default?

Why does Chakra not start certain services (e.g. CUPS or a firewall) by default?

If a user feels that the distribution should make all/most decisions for them, then yes, this would be wrong. But Chakra still adheres to the KISS principle, to keep the system clean and simple and to let the user decide what services should be run at any time. Chakra wants to provide full hardware support for graphics, sound, keyboard, mouse and network, but other services are up to the user to decide on.

CUPS, for example, can be started manually at will:

$ sudo systemctl start org.cups.cupsd.service

It can also be set to start every time the system is booted:

$ sudo systemctl enable org.cups.cupsd.service
