Not only can webmin be a "stepping stone"for learning one's way around better, it is effective at increasing productivity in experienced admins who know the commands and system like the back of their hand., it saves time in many cases and for all of us in business world, time is money. higher productivity equals cost savings over time.
Also, Working only in command line is a very linear way of thinking. Whether everyone likes it, or agrees with it, there are many "spatial" thinkers out there who learn better and faster by being able to "see" what they are doing.
There is more than one "right" way to do things sometimes. Big egos and choking only one way of doing things don peoples throats stifles creativity, productivity and potentially deters people who could contribute alot if only their method of interaction were "tolerated" better.
Webmin is a tremendous tool and can be used in a variety of settings allowing more people to be in control of their own systems.
