I have been using computers for over 20 years, starting with Sinclairs, Apple II, Commodore 64's, TRS-80, and CP/M based stuff. I have managed SunOS 4 workstations, firewalls of all sorts, Linux, FreeBSD, AIX and Solaris servers, done a fair share of network switching&routing management (from vlans and port mirroring all the way up to BGP routing), and even been a FreeBSD committer for a few years.

comment Cant use groups in a virtual user
@jdehnert Correct. You can declare undef as default for $groups, and then you don't need to specify it always. Unfortunately, you'll need an if below to select between a user declaration with groups, and one without. Note too that if you do not pass groups to the user, it will not have one.

comment Puppet: exec onlyif value is not equal
@Banjer echo $? prints the return value of a command, and returns 0. onlyif needs the return value, so if you add that echo, it will always receive 0.

comment How can the little guys effectively learn and use Puppet?
@ewwhite You're welcome. I, myself, have only recently discovered it, but much about it has caught my attention. If we hadn't so much in Puppet already, I'd definitely try it out.
