      ufw vs Gufw opinions
      Some users think ufw is a great alternative to Gufw, some don't.
      JohnFastman Ufw is the firewall for which gufw is the interface. Saying gufw is an alternative to ufw is like saying makeup is an alternative to having a face. Nevertheless, both are excellent at what they do: ufw is a nice firewall setup for Linux and gufw makes it easy to control using point-and-click. What's not to like?
