Install Pentaho BI-Server CE 5.0.1 on OSX/Windows/Ubuntu

Pentaho Business Intelligence Server (BI-Server) is an advanced reporting platform that can be used for reporting, delivering drill through dashboards and analyze all sorts of data. The Pentaho BI-Server comes in two flavours, the enterprise edition and a community edition. In this post I want to share the steps that I took to install Pentaho BI-Server CE on different test environments: OS X 10.7, Ubuntu 13.10 and Windows.
