All these interface will continue to be part of linuxconf, making linux administration universally afordable.
This is why Linuxconf need deeply a graphical user interface which is not only useful, but fine looking. Ultimately, this user interface must be flashy.
THe GUI of linuxconf is finally available and looks quite nice. We are still looking for various idea to make it really shine though. It is quite flexible and allow for remote efficient and secure administration over slow internet links. It sports a client server concept which make it light and flexible.
We have high hope to supply not only a very functional user interface, but also something that really look nice and appealing. There is one important concept about Linuxconf's user interface: It is uniformity. An administration system is not something you use everyday, so it must be as uniform as possible. As you will see the design will use quite often either scrolling dialogs (as with the current user interface) but also notebook style dialogs. The later greatly enhance the accessibility of the different option (people two often forget to scroll to the end of the dialog and ignore all the possibilities).
So quite often, the admin will have zillions of windows and potentially will start to administer the wrong machine :-) Potentially by selecting a different background color for each workstation, this will create a good visual effect allowing easy "focussing" on the correct workstation.
