Fir the first week, it looks straightforward. Then you try to use it,
and find the standards violating spaghetti under the hood. Even simple
things like reverse DNS integration with dynamic DNS, are a nightmare
and a half and sensitive to the exact order you do the same
operations. The DNS backups are not even valid DNS zone files because
the SOA is not first and they don't set the default zone before they
start referring to it as ".".. And do not get me *started* on the
completely broken mishandling of PTR, where they support multiple PTR
records for the sam eIP address.

It's a fairly pretty and even intuitive GUI for undemanding
environments. Like many Microsoft GUI's, it does the first 80% of the
job. Then the remaining details that have to be worked around take the
other 120% of the job.
