How.... true. I agree 100% with that statement. 

But.... could it be possible that Debian will support some sort of
GUI admin. tool? just like Redhat's control panel. maybe someone could
port this thing to Debian.

This GUI admin tool has:
1. Printer Configurator.(easy to add printers locally, remote or using smb.)
2. Network Configurator.(adding virtual hosts and/or dialup to an ISP.) 
3. Package Management. (sorta like a graphical dselect.)
4. Apache Configurator. (add virtual web hostings, etc.)
5. File System Configurator. (mount/unmounts filesystems and NFS.)
6. Runlevel Editor. (Edit the runlevels of the system.)
7. User & group configurator. (Add,delete or lock users/groups.)
8. Time Machine. (Change the Time or Date Grahically.)

Hell, it's so easy to dialup to an ISP using this thing, we could then
elimanate maybe 20% of the topic here in debian-user mailing list about
how to connect to an ISP. :)

I think, that's one strength of Redhat compared to Debian.

Webmin and Linuxconf has the same idea. Maybe we could tinker with it and
start from there.

Any Ideas?
