Posted by emusan on Dec. 11 2008,22:21I've just recently installed dsl embedded on my thumb drive so I could have a portable OS everywhere I go. However I've seen that recently Robert(one of the main programmers of this project I'm assuming) has just left and that John is thinking of taking the OS elsewhere. I'm just wondering if I should give the book and if I'll still be able to draw some useful information from it. I'm also wondering if I should continue to use dsl embedded even though its loosing support.
Posted by John on Dec. 12 2008,05:16Most of the book is still relevant. I'm still in the formation stage for the next step for DSL, and its going to take some time until whatever I do makes it into a proper release.
Posted by stunix*com on Dec. 12 2008,21:56I fully recommend the book which has a cd included with the relevent versions and software.
whatever the future holds, the version in the book is very capable and contains everything you need.
Posted by emusan on Dec. 12 2008,22:09I've decided to get the book and to stick with dsl as my main distro for on the go Linuxing. I'll probably get the book around christmas time.
Posted by chalbersma on Dec. 13 2008,21:27good call I personally enjoyed the book after I bought if off amazon. It covers the 3.x series but it does so in impressive detail.

On the index page of this site you have put all your "goodies" at the bottom of the page, and finally it says "Ideas on fundraising "...
I know you have the market place page, but that looks just like a horrid list of Goodle Adsense adverts. Sorry.
How about a nice obvious banner advert for the book and the other goodies across the top of the pages? Also, if you make the book ad an affiliate link to Amazon, then you get a couple of extra cents per sale.
I'll check out the book later - a chrissy pressie for myself.
