Ten years ago, on December 21st, 1999, Thomas Lange announced the
release of version 1.0 of FAI (Fully Automatic Installation).
The tool was developed at the University of Cologne, because the
author was too lazy to install Debian on 16 hosts manually. FAI now also
supports the installation of Ubuntu and RPM-based Linux
distributions. It is used worldwide in very different environments ;
even installations on two zSeries z10 mainframes are reported.
A detailed report in German about the 10 years of the FAI project
can be found at .
