"Unix/Linux is becoming more and more popular to the masses. The
mainstream distributions are becoming increasingly user-friendly.
But what does user-friendly really mean? In my opinion, it means
that an end-user does not need an administrator to do basic
"That is a big improvement if you happen to be such an end-user.
But it does not help you much if you are an administrator. In most
cases an administrator spends a lot of time disabling all the
user-friendly functionality of modern distributions. So I thought
we also needed an admin-friendly distribution."
"ROCK Linux aims to be admin-friendly. There is no YaST,
Linuxconf, or Control-Panel. Configuration is done where it has to
be done: in the config files. A configuration tool has to help an
administrator -- not replace him (I don't think that it's possible
to replace an administrator with a config tool.)."
