Decided to bring back the Pinguy OS Mini's. It comes with all the tweaks of the full version and has all the extra added system tools like Samba and boot repair, but for apps it just has Firefox with all the plug-ins so things like Netflix, Flash, Quicktime, Divx, Java, Hangouts etc. will work out-of-the-box and VLC for media.

It's just a nice clean solid base to add your own apps to. It does include all the repos from the full version so has a huge selection of apps available from the software center (Spotify, Dropobox, Skype, Steam etc.)

It's called a Mini due to many of the apps that are included in the main version being absent, but due to the tweaks and added system tools the ISO is about 1.3 GB in size.

32-Bit only for the moment:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/pinguy-os/files/Pinguy_OS_14.04_LTS/Pinguy_OS_14.04-Mini-Beta-i686.iso/download
Pinguy OS an out-of-the-box working operating system for everyone, not just geeks.

Ansible is great with templates and python and jinja and yaml and it is all new and buzz worthy and could last, it is all very nice...

But as mentioned this has all been done before with Perl, shell and even products like Kiwi Cattools.

The key to Network Automation is about the configuration control concept and how to implement this framework and follow through on the promise of network automation...

Tyler spoke of using gerrit with github, this idea of checking in your config changes for review and approval with in automated fashion is the key....

Then you just need a "sandbox" to test the changes and look for things that might be a potential failure point...Products like netbrain or opnet might need to be added into this, of course cost of this kind of thing will have to be considered...  

As for doing this stuff in production and without a change window that boils down to how you network is designed and if it is redundant enough to withstand the change and still allow traffic to "fail open".

TailF has been in the news with the Cisco purchase, but if you watch the demo of the way this software functions with its database and netconf and the ability to use other api or even access via cli, this is an amazing piece of software, that in the right management control process would be the answer to your dreams for mass configuration changes from a single management console, with a roll back and/or the ability to stop the change if a single piece fails...

doing automated changers in a virtual server farm where you have multiple points to serve up the same data is a completely different beast than doing in a network that only has a single path, of course this is design failure, but keeps automation from taking place at the level we would like to see...

All good stuff, really enjoyed the chat on this subject...
