I must agree. I was upgrading our Solaris mail server last night and spent
hours and hours (until 4am) screwing with the Veritas VMSA GUI. And this is
the almost latest version Java GUI. Eventually I gave up because it was slow,
non-intuitive, and merely system()'s off comand-line commands anyhow. I
started learning the command line stuff and now I am much better off for it.

However, I must admit that Veritas tech support is darn good. They always
answer my somewhat complicated questions quite well and were very responsive.
But for the amount we pay as a big corporate customer, they darn well better!
Now I get especially irritated when I get crummy bonehead support at home as
an ordinary user.

Hopefully one of these GUI apps can one day be used in a distributions GUI
install process and we can have nice LVM disk management from day 1. It
appears that there are two GUI's being worked on, is that correct? Is it
necessary?
