Logon scripts from linux to linux


I have some linux desktop boxes and I would like to launch different logon scripts depending on which user logs to each computer.
I would like to manage it from a centralized place, like windows gpo in active directory.

Which opensouce/GNU solution are you using for that purpose?

I was also thinking with this purposes:

- information retrieve on login (hw and software)
- software deployment
- message displays
- security patches
- sudoers maintenance
- web certificates deploy

May be i'm wrong, but it's what AD does with GPO , and I would like to do it without the AD.

Is it possible?
