For a few weeks now i've been thinking about better tools to provision our bare-metal servers and VMs. All tools out there are IMHO bloatware. Over-complicated stuff where nobody knows when the next library upstream will break feature X which will prevent shit from working. Typical wobbly constructs we have these days. I'm not a fan of them, you shouldn't be either.
I encounter stupidity on a daily basis, wether it is wannabe Linux-Admins like this guy "gehirn"/"gott" i chatted with on several occasions, but it's not just him, he's one of the 99% of Occupied by Brainfarts in my line of work.
