Sounds like the new Ubuntu's OneConf
would be nice to do. Something like "remastersys" for network
@beefstu: yes, I know (thanks the team!) we're going to have a tool to reinstall the apps, but i'm talking more of syncing configuration, meaning computer behaviour rather than the list of installed software. And, since there are a lot of sparse files responsible for the computer behaviour, there shouldn't be nedded to backup the whole home folder and restore it on the other machine, neither the user should use a needle-in-a-haystack method to backup only the important configuration files (gnome/gconf mainly, I guess).
If you look at this blog post http://www.linuxmint.com/blog/?p=1368 there is a new mintbackup coming in Mint 9 which you can backup your programs and restore them. I would imagine that you could set up the programs you want on one PC, back it up then restore it on another.
