    Annoucing Webmin .NET

    Effectively immediately, all Webmin development in Perl for Unix-like operating systems will cease. I have decided that Windows is the server platform of the future, so to support it Webmin will be re-written completely in C# for the .NET environment. System will requirements will be a 4 GHz Core Duo with 8 GB of RAM and Windows Vista with Aero Glass enabled. The current HTML user interface will be replaced by a single huge ActiveX control, which will naturally run in any browser that is Internet Explorer 7 on 64-bit Windows.
