    Webmin is for idiots? That's just stupid, why do everything through the console when you can have something do it for you with a nice UI?

    Also, as for the security risk you mentioned; use the firewall to limit it to specific IP addresses and setup specific account(s) with limited permissions.

    Still stupid and useless. If you dont know how to use the terminal, simply uninstall your Linux distro.

    Personally, I know how to use the terminal yet I still use Webmin more often than not since it's significantly easier. It still prints out the terminal responses and can provide more accurate (in some cases) messages to help you identify issues (with an installation for example). If you still think it's "stupid and useless" then to put it bluntly, that's retarded.

    No. :) Full Ack = Full agreement. That Desktop question was generell for all around here.

    Installing a Desktop environment is a lot different than installing Webmin. Unlike Webmin, a Desktop environment will take up a lot more resources.

    Not saying that webmin has his existence. Just saying its just a huge security risk on a "productive system". Ure getting owned if any1 hack your machine, and ddos the US&A government as example. ;)

    Use keys for your SSH login, install Fail2Ban and lock down Webmin to specific IP addresses then you're basically fine. There are still a lot more things you can do but on the list of security risks Webmin locked to specific IP's is one of the lowest, lol.
