Simple, fast administration with Webmin

I can't say enough good things about Webmin. The modules are well written and self explanatory and in almost every case better than the GUI admin tools that are included with any distro that I've every tried. Another important advantage is that it provides a unified interface that works with virtually every version if *nix. Every distro provides their own configuration tools, they all do the same thing but in slightly different ways. They represent a lot of duplicate work which would be OK if the competition were resulting in some noticeable improvements, but there is no evidence of that. Instead what you have is incompatibility for the sake of incompatibility. Webmin fixes that, it provides a single coherent administration interface that works with everything. I have Fedora 7 and 8, CentOS5 and Ubuntu Gutsy systems on my network, I use Webmin on all of them.
