Martin's interesting 37-page chapter on how Debian is structured [...] will probably become a small, but important and enduring part of the stories that Debian developers will tell about themselves. [...] Martin's thorough, but succinct, summary of the Debian project will be one of the features that will cause Debian fans to keep Martin's book in a well-thumbed condition on their shelves. -- Christian Einfeldt, MadPenguin

Feedback

Richard Bejtlich, Tao Security: Krafft is obviously a Debian enthusiast, but he is not a zealot blind to any flaws Debian might possess. He is also not afraid to praise other OS' (like NetBSD) or declare that certain misconceptions (think debconf) are invalid. When necessary he compares Debian tools or syntax to other Linux distributions, such as a chart on pp 200-201 on apt, yum, up2date, and urpmi. The book also contains a large number of footnotes with URLs for more research and additional commentary.
