Yes, I currently have Plesk 7.5.something on one server. If you have to
go with a commercial control panel, this is definitely what I would

I have tried a demo license of cPanel to see how good their "beta"
support is for Debian. It is simply awful! Expect lots of breakage, it
doesn't work well with apt-get, etc. Plesk uses .deb packages, so
dependencies are handled properly, they don't force you to use their own
customized Apache like cPanel does, etc.

Any web GUI is much slower for me than the CLI, but customers seem to
like it better.
