about linux deployment: considering the different flavors of linux both automated OS deployment and software deployment depend on the specific distro of linux you use. Are you focusing on a specific distro?

Along the same line, the type of 'package' you use for software deployment (.deb, .rpm, sourcecode) dictates the strategies and tools you would use.

Different linux distros also have different inherent packagemanagement tools (apt for debian, yum for redhat, emerge for gentoo..)


That would be the biggest difference to Windows deployment, where the environment and package format are more standardised, even though the deployment systems vary (SCCM, Altiris, LANDesk, etc...)

Linux Deployment means you need to deploy the Linux OS in all the machines (specified) in the network, whereas deploying software in Linux means you need to remotely install specified softwares on a collection of machines.
