    One of the strengths of Linux is how configurable it can be. One of the weaknesses is how complex it can be, especially for newbies without exposure to comparable concepts in Windows.

    Are there any simple GUIs that script configuration say by asking the user to check boxes? I am thinking of things like the GUIs that exist for firewalls to make them simpler. An example would be a screen that allows you to check which users should have access to Firefox, which users should have remote access, which users should be able to open a terminal…

    Thanks for your interesting article!

      There are GUI tools for configuring various features of Linux, especially on modern Linux distributions. However, using the command line gives system administrators more power in configuring a Linux system. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. We are grateful.
