I didn't follow the development of Cipux since years. All I know about  
is likely outdated. Also the same for GOSA.
LWAT is in my view a temporary attempt to get the highly needed admin 
tool, but it has never been accepted as such a tool. It is too buggy 
and worse maintained from upstream and not usable for greater 
installations as it misses the needed features for admins like a 
command line interface. And as it's frontend is written in php, I 
dislike to use it for remote administration tasks.
It was and is the most reason for the primary schools here at home to 
change back to plain debian installations from Skolelinux. I'm 
preparing right now a server with plain debian to substitute a 
Skolelinux one tomorrow.

I hope, in the meantime your ass became painless, so that you are able 
to tell us more detailed, which are the points of hurt? :)

Don't be so ultmative, it isn't a good way for life to do so, as I can 
tell you from my life. ;-)
