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

John Vacca: This excellent book has done an excellent job of targeting people familiar with Unix who are looking to understand what makes Debian different, and how to best put Debian's paradigms and tools to use. In other words, this book is intended to be a reference for the Debian system, as well as a guide for those that want to go further with the system.
