Well.... I personally think that puppet being written in Ruby is a plus :-P

However, puppet itself is not Ruby; it is only developed in Ruby.  Ruby 
is also used extensively for the FreeBSD portsupgrade tool and for Ruby 
on Rails.  I suspect its more widely used than most realize, and if I'm 
not mistaken, Ruby is included in one or more of the standard Red Hat 

I must admit that the creation of my first customized Red Hat 
installation CDROMs was largely done to include Ruby v1.4....
