"'Augh! yet another Web based configuration manager', i
think when i see the Webmin in my aptitudes new packages list.
'Maybe.. Just Maybe, this is better than LinuxConf', which i had
installed a month back and killed as soon as i get it
"Today i felt like i should install it, just to see if it
outperforms SWAT which i installed to see if it does well with
samba. The installation itself went smoothly, apt-get gets the
package, i get a note that Webmin knows the system beneath, i smile
a little thinking that it just digs up the version for the system
and prints it out to be cool..."
"I load up my browser, head to http://localhost:10000, and get a
prompt asking me my roots password. i give in the password and get
a menu in front of me. I was expecting to see the configuration
options (remember, i used linuxconf previously) and i just get a
few options, and sub menus. 'Hmm.. where is all the good stuff?', i
think and start clicking around. After a while i figure out the
pattern, everything is quite well organized."
