      idlesHand Very powerful and flexible control panel for servers and vps. If you need to provide access to say web-hosting modules to a non-linux user than you can do so with granular access permissions so they can only break apache and not the ssh. ;-)

      Webmin is simply an interface for checking server performance and doing simple maintainance. cPanel is much more than that.
