Hi list,

As this is my first post and I am absolutely new on juju, please bear 
with me for now.

I've been doing some reading the past few days after I stumbled upon 
this project. A lot is already clearer, but I like to get some 
clarification on what juju can and can't do.

For starters iĺl explain where I come from: As a small opensource 
implementer I am busy getting Zentyal to a larger public (and 
customers). Zentyal is a small business server based on ubuntu LTS 
version (currently lucid).

To make good use of a small business server, a manageable client 
environment is important. So now I come to the point I joined this list 
(and for me the 1 million dollar question.. :) )

Is it possible to use juju as a administration tool to deploy clients, 
manage updates and software installs for clients running ubuntu (and 
derivatives)? (*sshhhhhh* Something similar like the microsoft WSUS 
solution. /*sshhhhhh*)

Lack of possibility to centrally administer client pc's is, as far as 
I'm concerned, the biggest problem that prohibits ubuntu desktop use in 
a professional environment.
