In chapter A. Debian flavours and other Debian-based operating systems on page 564:

The last sentence of A.2.3 states that Gnoppix is the basis for the Ubuntu Live CD. This is not accurate. Andreas Müller, the developer of Gnoppix, actually developed the Ubuntu Live CD first, and then reused this work for Gnoppix. Thus, Gnoppix is based on the Ubuntu Live CD, not vice versa.

Feedback

Noel Davis, rootprompt.org: Can you imagine a book about Debian GNU/Linux stretching to 600 pages? No, not covering any of the applications that ship with Debian, nor delving into general configuration of, say, X or Samba. Just pure Debian; that is to say, the book covers Debian-specific utilities only, in densely printed pages with hardly any screenshots. Yup, a book like that has just been published under the name of The Debian System - Concept and Techniques. Written by Martin Krafft, this is one of the most comprehensive and detailed accounts of the largest Linux distribution in existence.
