Salt Stack is not quite like a CM system such as Puppet, Chef or CFEngine. It's a new tool with an interesting approach. Chef is good as always. But still my vote goes to Puppet. A good year with a new major release (3.0) and a new tool (Razor) among other things.

CFEngine 2 was very hard to digest; although I here v3 learnt a lot from:

Puppet - is much easier, but still not trivial. And putting out Ruby everywhere is not feasible for all. Here the custom CFEngine agent looks like a better choice.

+1 Ansible gives you a nice head start and requires just proper ssh & sudo.
