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.

Noel Davis, 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.
