SaltStack rocks if for me and has really come on strong in 2013.

Note: Okay, I get that some live and breath vim, but a text editor is NOT a configuration management tool unless you're talking about a very small number of boxes. Try managing a few hundred, much less thousands of systems with vim or pico and this becomes readily apparent.

Peace--

Amazing that Gartner Group's 2013 "Cool Vendor of the Year" product only got 7 votes here in a "Tool of the Year" category. I thought SaltStack had a good chance of at least placing in this one.

I'm more surprised that Chef only got 12 votes, but the participation in this category is among the lowest for all the polls.

I suspect that is reflective of the target audience, w/exception of Slackers and a few old dogs, a substantial percentage of LQ's target audience are fairly new to maybe intermediate users. Configuration management tools target more enterpirse type users, who 1) tend to be intermediate to advanced, and 2) too busy working for the man to hang out here :-P

I'm a bit confused about it, I work now for almost 20 years with CM tools, but it means something different for us.
