I want to begin by apologizing for the next question which would inflame many of you but I sow that even Jim asked ( Improve our communication ): WHAT NETHSERVER SHOULD BE?
In that post I think Jim is in opposition to that which he required here (The all-in-one concept suggest a sort of melpot, that Netserver doing all at the same time. Something monilitic, a big brick.).
IMHO, NethServer has enough issues that must be solved before being a big brick which will cannot be put in solid wall.
Of course you will ask me which are those “enough issues that must be solved”.
Please read carefully this forum! I’m sure that you will get the proper answer!
I will publish some of my thoughts that I told someone which I respect very much in this community. Maybe reading them, you will understand better that which I mean.
Again, please don’t blame me!
I like NethServer very much and I want a good user friendly product!
*I'm not a programmer (often I wish to be). I'm not an Windows or Linux expert.*
*I think I'm the man in the middle: between a programmer and an expert. An user with a lot of technical knowledge, able to administer an information system.*
*Sysadmins, usually and unfortunately, don't do only specific operations, they do everything: hw interventions, sw interventions, teach users, change toner cartridges, set up printers, and so on.*
*Because of that, as sysadmin, I need (want) a software (apps, servers like NethServer, Zentyal, Endian, ClearOS, IpCop, ...) to help me with informations as fast is possible.*
*... Not users who want that NethServer to be "Any in One Server" but those who need tools. Better and user friendly tools to make their work easier everyday.*
*I know there are many operations that require CLI. But also there are many that can be done from UI.*
*Please look at other similar or quite similar servers. All usual operations are made from UI.*
*I prefer to help the NS Community from this point of view: of the man in the middle, the sysadmin between a programmer and an expert.*
*At least I will try. Even if I'll draw harsh criticism!*
