Interesting. I am really curious, what do you HATE about it and why are you so adamant about needing a GUI for the FTP SERVER? I ask because you mention Filezilla, which is an FTP client. Using Proftpd as your server, you are still able to use your choice of clients.

Proftpd contains a couple of text files to configure, most notably proftpd.conf and is easy to set up as a basic configuration.

While I understand your frustrations and your desire for a GUI, especially coming from the Windows mindset, if you want to be a successful, let alone powerful Linux user, you will need to get past that. GUI interfaces make things easier for the beginner, but them become a crutch. They are also a limitation, restricting you to that which the designer thought you should or want to do. Once you become more familiar with the command line interface you will realize this and will appreciate the extreme difference. For example, a GUI doesn't allow you to stream together simple commands to perform a complex actions, which is one of the fundamental principles on which Linux (and its predecessor Unix) were built.

If you are having difficulty installing or configuring your FTP server, I am sure this forum can and will help you.
