    I still mourn after this IMHO great project:

    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTE2MzE

    Unfortunately, it seems to be stalled/dead since 2012.

    Thanks, I didn't know that guide.

    However, it's really not quite the same.
    It seems to be more like a detailed glossary.
    This is not bad at all, but I think it serves a different need.

    What I have seen from that book attempt was really, really good already,
    which makes it even more sad that they stopped working on it.
    Maybe they are still working on it from time to time in a private repository,
    as Alan Coppersmith implied back in 2012. But I doubt they still do...
