chef-dk is chef-client + other chef related tools (berkshelf, test-kitchen,
foodcritic etc). chef-dk also provides the chef command (currently it
provides scaffolding and gem installation ). If you are not familiar
with ruby, you might find chef-dk easier to deal with. If you are already
familiar with ruby/bundler it should not matter much (infact you might be
able to get more customized things by raw chef-client + bundler, i have
painful experience from vagrant’s plugin in past ). chef-dk will also
fasten then installation process (since its omnibus), this also means you
have to install it as root, unlike the chef-client which can be installed
as normal user (for development workstations).

I have a chef server on a linux machine and want to use a windows machine
to upload cookbooks.
I notice that there are 2 options:
- Chef client - it seems to contains items for both client and workstation
- Chef-dk - it seems to contain items related to workstation alone.
I wanted to know if the above understanding is correct?
Also - which would be a better choice since both enable knife and cookbook
Thanks for your time and suggestions.
