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

Andreas Bohle (Linux Magazin 08/2005, p. V): The book is for beginners with an interest in the technical aspects, just as much as it is for seasoned Debian users: not everyone is familiar with the diversity of configuration mechanisms and tools of the free distribution. Notwithstanding its distinctly theoretical approach, this tome excels with a substantial quantity of practical examples which illustrate the coherences [of the distribution] further.
