Have a few clients going through some hardware/software refreshes lately and was looking for an Open Source imaging, software deployment suite.  Found Fog Project last week and have been testing it pretty heavily since.

While it lacks some of the refinement of say SCCM or similar products, it definitely is way more user friendly and GUI designed that any of the other imaging open source products on the map.  Add in the extra software distribution and client management portions that it has, and the reporting aspects, I'm starting to find it well suited to small business needs.  And it is an active project, and seems to have quite the foot hold for adoption... hell even Dell wrote a tech article on how to image their systems with it (even if it is somewhat dated): https://www.dell.com/support/article/en-ca/sln301475/fog-imaging-walkthrough?lang=en

Anyway I thought I would share. Pretty easy setup on CentOS 8 using their CentOS 7 setup instructions.
