Just going with someone else's suggestion who was unhappy with
specific mentions of unix. I'm open to whatever people decide is most

I've been asked if I'm talking about a basketball team when I talk about *nix! So +1 for Unix variant from me. By the way, good document.

I think it would be very useful to have a section (or separate document?) on how to incorporate boost into your project's build / source control. Currently I use "vendor branches" as described in the subversion book. I'm not sure of a better way myself :) I think this question came up elsewhere last week as well.
