I heard today about Windows 2012 R2 "desired state configuration" which made me think a bit of puppet. The general idea is to get systems configured to a desired state with whichever changes are needed to get to that state. Desired State Configuration in Windows Server 2012 R2 PowerShell - YouTube for a presentation.

But when I see a bit of configuration sample in the above video it makes me think a lot of puppet:
Configuration FourthCoffeeWebsite
{
	Node ("WebServer1","WebServer2")
	{
		# Install the IIS role
		WindowsFeature IIS
		{
			Ensure  = "Present"
			Name    = "Web-Server"
		}
		
		# Install the ASP .NET 4.5 role
		WindowsFeature AspNet45
		{
			Ensure  = "Present"
			Name	= "Web-Server"
		}
	}
}
Funny how system administration in the Windows and Linux/Unix world is converging. Just like Windows PowerShell makes me think of scripting languages and the unix commandline.
