p4: s/build a kernel image/a kernel image/   (the 'build' is already
mentioned in the header)
p4: for symmetry reasons, I would suggest to start the last point also
with 'It builds' instead of 'Builds'
p4: the 'composed of Busybox' seems odd to me, because 'Busybox' is
one item. Maybe a native English speaker (Will?) can give feedback on
this. Suggestions from me are 'containing Busybox' or 'based on

p4/5 title: on page 4 there is a question mark, not so on page 5.

p5: I'm unsure what you're trying to say with 'Standard languages
used'. If you refer to make, that was already covered on the previous
slide and may be redundant here.

p5: you're mainly typing full sentences, which is good IMO. But the
'Need to do complete rebuilds' is not consistent with that. I'd
suggest 'You need to ...'.

p10/11: reminder: still lists a TODO about build time

p12: s/more choice/more choices/    (at least, that's my feeling)
p12: first bullet says: "Buildroot complete rebuild", second says:
"complete Buildroot rebuild". This should be consistent. I prefer the
second one.

p24: s/Creating/Create/
p31: s/Mouting/Mounting/

Thanks for the credit, and:
Great job!

Best regards,
