Just to play Devil's advocate, I'd have to say that my limited webmin 
experience wasn't a good one, though it was only dealing with bind. It 
created different zone files, separate from existing ones, and kind of 
fudged my whole server. I ditched it from there. Apart from that, I'm 
sure it's a nice tool, but many of the plugins seem to be nothing more 
than a web-based text editor to the files. Not a whole lot of "let's 
make this simpler than editing the config by hand" going on with many of 
the plugins.
