Operating system information is misleading[edit]

In the sidebar the article states about the Kindle OS: "Kindle Firmware utilizing Linux 2.6.26 to 3.0.35" which is misleading later when it says the paperwhite runs off of 5.6.5, since it is assumed that this means Linux 5.6.5, which doesn't exist. perhaps "Linux for Kindle" would be more suitable.— Preceding unsigned comment added by CapnJackBevs (talkcontribs) 14:03, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

The Linux number is the kernel versions being used and the 5.6.5 number is current Kindle firmware version. There is no such thing as "Linux for Kindle". A Kindle is a computer that uses an ARM processor that runs the Linux kernel. --Frmorrison (talk) 15:27, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Amazon Kindle. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

Adding Kindle scout section[edit]

Hello, I am a student at the College of DuPage and as an assignment for my English class. I decided to work on the Amazon Kindle article. I plan to add a section on Kindle Scout and expand the Kindle direct publishing section. If you have any questions or concerns on my edits, please let me know. --Youngauthorkat (talk) 22:33, 3 April 2016 (UTC)Youngauthorkat

There is not any information on Kindle Scout on Wikipedia, so your contributions are welcome. I have been considered moving some of the publishing content to a new article, such as Kindle or Amazon Publishing, but for this next week, I am not going to change anything. --Frmorrison (talk) 17:52, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Sounds great Frmorrison! I am willing to help you with adding a separate article if you would like. Thanks for the feedback. --Youngauthorkat (talk) 17:52, 5 April 2016 (UTC)Youngauthorkat

I made the separate article, Kindle Direct Publishing. I moved the Scout items there. --Frmorrison (talk) 15:20, 11 April 2016 (UTC)
