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:

Remote GUI, Windows client, Ubuntu 16.04 server

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.
