What does 2007 hold for open source?

Firefox crosses the 23% frontier in Europe

Shifting from 19.4% for the week of the 8th to the 14th of April 2006, Firefox user share rose to 23.2% in the week from November 20th to November 26th 2006. Oceania [inc. Australia - hkwint ], experiencing the highest increase (+ 2 points), is now the first continent ahead of Europe in terms of user rate. Firefox is also gaining ground in North America, Africa and Asia (between 1 and 1.9 points), but much more slowly in South America (+0.2 points).

[Even in my conservative country 14%. I wouldn't believe this about three years ago, when Phoeninx, as Firefox was called about version 0.9 if I remember correctly, was far worse than Opera - hkwint ]

Setting Up A PXE Install Server For Multiple Linux Distributions With Ubuntu Edgy Eft

  • HowtoForge; By Falko Timme (Posted by falko on Dec 19, 2006 9:41 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Ubuntu
This tutorial shows how to set up a PXE (short for preboot execution environment) install server with Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft). A PXE install server allows your client computers to boot and install a Linux distribution over the network, without the need of burning Linux iso images onto a CD/DVD, boot floppy images, etc. This is handy if your client computers don't have CD or floppy drives, or if you want to set up multiple computers at the same time (e.g. in a large enterprise), or simply because you want to save the money for the CDs/DVDs. In this article I show how to configure a PXE server that allows you to boot multiple distributions: Ubuntu Edgy/Dapper, Debian Etch/Sarge, Fedora Core 6, CentOS 4.4, OpenSuSE 10.2, and Mandriva 2007.
