It's not enabled by default and you don't have to use it.

C-x = (i) is two keystrokes, and (ii) does not even give character's
name.

C-u C-x = (i) is three keystrokes, (ii) pops up a new window, which
later needs to be closed somehow, (iii) contents of which is actually
terribly hard to read (e.g. name of the character is somewhere in the
middle).
