<13Stuwee> ## If DSC and Chef are simular and I haven't used either, why would I learn Chef over DSC at this point?
<0halr9000> ## tell us more about configuration management of some "non-traditional" nodes like the network and storage hardware that you mentioned earlier
<13Stuwee> ## Do you use PSH within Chef?
<13Stuwee> ## please igonre if already asked. Does it work with clients or just servers. Does it have a client install piece?
<13Stuwee> ## what about "what clients are supported", XP, Win7 Server 2003 etc...
<0organicit> ##As an enterprise why should I consider Chef over Puppet. Sorry if this has been addressed
<13Stuwee> ## what about cost?
<13Stuwee> ## if you have a run list and one thing fails, how is the admin notified that it failed, how easy is it to recover?
<13Stuwee> ## how many cookbooks exist today and how ofter do new ones get added/updated?
<13Stuwee> ## if the cookbooks are community created/driven, how is the quality of the cookbook verified? Does anyone validate the cookbook?
<13Stuwee> ## how long has Chef been "in the business". In other words can I trust it to be around for the long term in light of DSC?
<13Stuwee> ## does it maintain a "state" or is it primarly used for installation of software?
<13Stuwee> ## wait wait.... just kidding
