The problem is: Why install all these things in the first place, if
you never need it? Why is turning things off necessary? 

Some distributions even make turnings things off unnecessarily hard -
I'm thinking of Suse here (and also MS-Windows, MS-Word,MS-IE,...,
kind of.)

That's why personally I prefer Debian. It only does what I tell it to.
This is not to say that other distributions are bad or anything (I'm
too old for this kind of discussion ;) but if you want a fully
pre-configured distribution with lots of desktop bells and whistles,
than use one. But if you want a highly customized one, than try Debian
or Gentoo or Slack.
