Pros: helpful, both great levels of detail and breadth of coverage
Cons:



An excellent book! Covers aspects of project-managing of porting
aspects (including costing, and time-lines) as well as for example
availability of tools on the varied platforms, comparison of switches
and options for different tools (e.g. Solaris cc vs gcc). I was very
positively surprised by this volume, and most enjoyed the
business-aspects.
