Jonas Hovgaard, a developer from Denmark has released a terrific piece of software called Servant. Servant is a web-based administration tool for IIS, which can be used instead of the Internet Information Services management tool (InetMgr) to manage and administer most of the daily operations of IIS. This is how it looks (screenshots courtesy of Jonas Hovgaard):

With Servant, you can also remotely-manage servers using your browser, instead of having to remote-desktop into them.

This kind of innovation (not to mention terrific visual style) is a great achievement and speaks highly to the quality of the IIS community. I’d like to thank Jonas for his hard work on this.
