WebAdmin: Hide Unlicensed Features
It would be nice, to be able to hide unneeded or unlicensed features, so the Webinterface is concise and only shows what I can work with.

In regards to the view option to hide areas, this already does appear in the product for webadmin customization.
To set a user to only see a particular area such as Web security and Network security goto Management>>Webadmin Settings>>Access Control.
Create an access control view for the user account to only see the selected security areas.

That's a good idea. A compromise for the proposed marketing and usabilty requests could be, to display all features to the "admin" user but only display licensed/ permitted features to other users who have access to WebAdmin. Additionaly, everything could still be displayed on the dashboard.

I don't understand the issue.
Just don't click on the Feature and you don't see configuration items of your "unneeded" things.
I know other systems and i must say, that the navigation of astaro far from overloaded gui.
And compare with an installation of variously linux distribution like to compare apples and oranges.
I like this idea.... was thinking about it just the other day.
I can't agree... or you did missunderstand: If I buy consulting and technical installation service and got all information about a mind blowing featureset and finaly buy what I need, than I dont need to see a overloaded gui with features i (currently) don't need ...
That would be the same as if a linux distribution installes all software, all services like different webservers or database systems ... and you only need a print server ...
from a commercial point of view, it's good to show unlicensed features, so customers can see what their product can offer...
