Wishlist: It could be noted that Debian 5 is our tenth release.

The name EM64T is deprecated. "x86-64 (amd64)" would do.

"version of Mozilla Firefox" could be misleading. I'd suggest "a derivative of 
Mozilla Firefox" or "closely based on Mozilla Firefox".

> MySQL 5.1.30
Hum, are you sure?

> Linux kernel version 2.6.26
Either "the Linux kernel, version 2.6.26", or simply Linux 2.6.26.

NTFS is not yet supported "out of the box". The Linux driver is still 
(basically) read-only, only NTFS-3G allows real read-write.

Note that swfdec is already in stable (Gnash *is* new, though it didn't 
impress me much more than swfdec).

Wasn't this already the case with etch? Anyway, there should be no comma 
between "technology" and "into".

"BitTorrent" is the proper capitalization.
