well, you really think it is possible to create a better configuration tool than vi??????
all-in-one configuration tools suck, because 2 seconds after publishing them, someone releases a new version of his/her program with millions of new features and your super trooper linuxconf/yast2/orhoweveruwannacallit is out of date.
one last question: how can i use a "graphical point-and-click" configuration tool on my server without a mouse/X-server???
