Replacing BIND with PowerDNS and PowerAdmin

Why the switch?

Recently I started wondering if there would be something better than the old, trustworthy BIND for all my DNS daemon needs. BIND is good, don't get me wrong, but I have to say that I don't feel it makes my job as an administrator for hundreds of domains any easier being (primarily) based on weirdly syntaxed plain-text files that are quite error-prone. So, encouraged by my not-so-recent discovery of Nginx, a very good alternative for the industrial standard Apache, I went on with my crusade to find a perfect DNS daemon.
