My first host was a cpanel host as well. We can’t use it here, but I really don’t miss it. Call me biased, but I really do like the dreamhost way of organizing the web directories in user accounts better and also find their placement of functions a little more intuitive.
Knowing what you’re used to will help people understand what different from what you’re used to and make it easier to explain the slightly different ways of doing things.
At any rate, others have already explained the big difference in the way the web directories are organized under the user accounts here, which has also tripped up a number of newcomers to dreamhost.
