Disingenuous. It does not REQUIRE you to use your AppleID as the user password, and it’s probably not a good practice anyway.

Using it as an example is silly, in that it LOWERS security.  

Comparing CentOS (an OS quite often used on servers on well-protected networks) to a consumer-grade OS that wants to integrate your login to “the cloud”, is rediculous. Of COURSE the defaults for a cloud connected machine are higher.
