Open Tofu released its first stable version just as I was uninstalling Pulumi. The same annoying (renamed) HCL, but with an open source license & the Linux Foundation instead of HashiCorp. I decided to give it a shot instead. My thinking being that if it fails I can still always migrate back to Terraform. So I'm no worse off.
More about just why I might want to add Cloudflare & Hetzner infrastructure in a future post in this countdown.
