Right now, I am running the text trough an online grammar/spell checker and realize that I have a lot of work ahead of me. Besides fixing existing text, I also want to rewrite a few paragraphs. I'll update once everything is fixed.
In the meantime, here is an updated screenshot of the cover. :)

Writing an e-book is a little like getting married. At first, it's a good idea. And then, it's

@vancouver,

We do not recommend using Rufus to create live usbs. We recommend using one of our live-usb-maker tools. If someone is starting with only Windows, then instead of telling people to use a 2nd usb stick to store their data, we recommend that after booting with a Rufus live-usb, they plug in the 2nd stick and run live-usb-maker and select clone mode to clone the Rufus live-usb into a full featured live-usb. You can then store all of your data on the one stick using the ~/Live-usb-storage/ directories.

Better still, you can encrypt the new live-usb and then your system and your saved data will be encrypted.

Encryption and live-usb-storage are just two of the many features available when you make a a full featured MX or antiX live-usb.
