Guys, you both have really good ideas. So does Ersin. My personal 
opinion is that having a Web UI + a RCP GUI would be the best solution. 
But when I look at the schedule, that's a different story :)

Alex is right when he says that a configuration GUI is mainly used by 
admins, which has almost all the wanted accesses on their computers. But 
Chris is also right, because you have so many hurdles in front of you 
when it comes to install an application on your computer in big 
companies ... Plus the fact that asking for a new protocol and port 
being allowed on the firewall can be simply impossible sometime...

Damn, this is a complex world !

What about slowing down the planet rotation speed to 48 hours ?
