A person (which I believe is the author of another similar product, thus that other product is nagware and /or payware versus Tiny PXE Server being fully freeware) has been truly harrassing / spamming me over the last days claiming the ownership (if not copyright) around the kernel parameters I used for Ubuntu Live booting (cifs, nfs, etc) in previous articles.

I will recommend this page if you wish to understand more about which kernel parameter does what.

I consider syntax around products like grub4dos, syslinux, ipxe, distros kernels to be public knowledge and therefore free for everyone to copy paste, modify, re use.
Actually there are tons of forums and web sites out there experimenting and sharing findings and knowledge about this.
Some of my favorite forums being http://reboot.pro or iPxe.

Any dev guy claiming copyright over this syntax would (IMHO) look like a fool.

I will not approve comments over my blog around this topic.
Why? Because I can.

I purposedly will not mention or quote that guy harassing me simply.
Why? Because I do not want to encourage such behaviors and because that person does not deserved to be mentionned.

Topic closed…

  1. […] Note : About that syntax, as there is a controversy, be aware that I did not make it up. Google and you’ll find tons similar examples and/or variants. See my latest post abou this here. […]
