Sorry for taking so long to get back to you.

We chose webmin over eBox because webmin has a much leaner footprint. eBox brought in too many dependencies.
Besides, WebMin has a ton of useful functionality via extension modules that eBox doesn't provide. For the usage scenarios
we envisioned it seemed like Webmin was a better fit.
