In chapter 2. The Debian Project on page 32:

The fourth paragraph of the subsection entitled "The early days" in "A history lesson" states that Debian rex was released in December "of the same year". This refers to the release of buzz in June 1996, not the release of the Debian botch in December 1995. rex was released in December 1996.

Abhijeet Chavan, Urban Insight, Inc.: I liked Krafft's precise, straight-to-the-point writing style. He makes basic as well as advanced topics readable without coming across as either condescending or cryptic. The terse footnotes are useful and supplement the text with interesting tips and resources. This is a technical book for sure, without fluff or off-topic detours, and it's packed with information. Still, Krafft manages to impart a personal feel by sharing his observations and balanced opinions. He delivers frank assessments of the strengths, weaknesses and eccentricities of a Debian system. In fact, the book even includes an appendix on how to decide if Debian is the right GNU/Linux distribution for you.
