-Traffic ​at the booth was brisk, and we met a lot of new people who are interested ​in our technology.+Marty Connor, Michael Brown, and H. Peter Anvin gave a Google Tech talk recently ​at Google headquarters in Mountain View, California. ​ We highlighted ​the new features of gPXE, PXELINUX, and how we have advanced the state of the art in network booting.

-Please note that some of the code for iSCSI booting of Windows has been temporarily taken out of the gPXE codebase at the request of Microsoft Corporation. One necessary part for iSCSI boot in Windows is the iBFT data structure which Microsoft claims is proprietary at this time. + --- //[[mdc@etherboot.org|Marty Connor]] 2008/​09/​26//​
- +
-**Update 13 March 2007** +
- +
-Microsoft has released an iBFT specifications document which requires agreeing to a Microsoft License Agreement to download. ​ We have asked the [[http://​softwarefreedom.org|Software Freedom Law Center]] to examine the required license and give us an opinion on whether we can safely release open source code based on the specification. +
- +
-**Update 9 August 2007** +
- +
-IBM has released the iBFT specification document under GPL-friendly terms. ​ The iBFT code, based on the IBM document, is now back in the codebase. ​ [[:​sanboot|Enjoy!]]+
