I wrote last year two posts about how I manage my Macs with Chef.

I have a few updates to make at some point but it's not all finished.  You may be interested in what Ben Bleything has done here:

Or what Pivotal Labs has:

These are workstation examples, obviously but there is applicable work for cross platform use of course. Opscode has also updated a few cookbooks to support OSX, MySQL, git, build-essential for example.

I know that chef supports OS X, at least to a degree (cf. <http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Installing+Chef+Client+on+OS+X> and <http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Workstation+Setup+for+Mac+OS+X>). However, I'm wondering how many people out there have an installed base of OS X clients (and servers) and are using chef to help manage those assets? Anyone doing that for both OS X and some flavour of Linux as well?
