comment How to default terminal startup?
I just find it amusing when people need to have a GUI editor to edit a system configuration file on a Unix derivative system. I wonder what they do if someone presses CTRL+ALT+F1 on their keyboard and there's no longer any GUI? :)

comment How to automatically restart Tomcat7 on system reboots?
I haven't seen the script you just referenced. It looks sane and it looks like it replaces the startup/shutdown scripts that come with Tomcat. My version is merely using them. Have you tested those scripts and confirm they work? If so, you can go ahead and use my script. Use whichever you like, the important thing is to understand what the script does when you paste it.

comment How to automatically restart Tomcat7 on system reboots?
The init scripts under /etc/init.d can be dependent on each other, such as in this case: tomcat7 script won't be run before the network scripts are run. Could you look up 'runlevels' and 'network interface' terms on google? I'm happy to help with other things but not so much with Googling trivial stuff for others. And about the other question: my script is meant to replace /etc/init.d/tomcat7.

It's Fox after all - they fear what they don't understand (wget in this case), so they ban it. Sorry, could not resist.
