I have noticed a general tendency here for new server admins to want to install a desktop on his or her server and then forward part or more often the entire desktop over ssh or VNC server.
I am of the opinion web interfaces are a better choice as outlined in my answer here:
I am willing to write a question from a new user perspective asking about graphical tools for server management and post the answer I already wrote there.
I would post it as a community wiki.
The goal would be to have a community resource for server management.
Would such a Q/A topic be useful ?
EDIT: Started here - Graphical Server Management
Answer is community wiki so please feel fee to review / edit / comment / update.
