Once you've done this once, you'll likely say to yourself, "Oh. That wasn't as difficult as I expected it to be." It really is pretty easy, and operationally it has a similar convenience to USB once the two boot services (DHCP, TFTP) are configured.

There is no requirement that the boot services be the same OS that you're booting. They may also be on separate servers. As far as I know, though, there is a requirement that you used a wired Ethernet connection. I've yet to see a WiFi NIC that could be used with PXE.
