Bossie 2010 winner: Webmin

Webmin is a Web-based GUI for systems administration on Unix computers. Webmin provides a Web interface to manage users, manage disks and mounts, review log files, change TCP/IP settings and firewall rules, and control the Web servers, DNS and DHCP, databases, mail servers, and many other services running on your machines. Webmin has a modular architecture, so support for new services to control is easily added. Between the long list of standard modules and others from third parties, there's little Unix system administration that can't be handled with Webmin. Plus, Webmin's per-module, per-user access controls make it easy to divide sysadmin responsibilities among IT staff.
