Exactly. Webmin is a great example. I would definitely use Webmin to
do a lot of my configuration stuff. I haven't used YaST too much, so I
really cannot comment on that.

How does it matter whether I use gedit or vim to write out my files?
The point that the author was trying to make is that writing out the
files in itself is superior(?)/preferred over using a point-and-click
tool.
