Hi,

Started learning Puppet to use it in our environments and really getting used to it.

Kind regards,

Eric

I also started learning Puppet in the last year. Having never used any of the others, I went with it .

Between Puppet and Chef, I voted for Puppet because it's the one I've used and loved.

Wink I don't really see the point, but...

Puppet and Cfengine are good, but the best is Vim/vi

I hope that helps!

Kindest regards,

.

Having tried almost all of them, I chose (and voted) for CFEngine. I use version 3 exclusively, not version 2, mostly for the lightweight footprint and multi-OS support.

By the way, maybe next year you might include Rudder in the poll? It's a configuration management tool built on CFEngine :-) [full disclosure: I work on Rudder]

Thumbs up I don't see Salt in the voting.

It is relatively new but it is much easier to configure than most other configuration mangement tools. http://saltstack.org

Quite a few seem to be missing:
* YaST
* sysinstall
* cpanel
* text editor (manual amending conf file)
to name but 3 off the top of my head.

Saltstack looks really nice, but I haven't gotten around to using it, yet.

For automation of any sort (including configuration management), I have been making use of cron + Python + Fabric.
