    Glossary anyone? Bootstrap, root etc.

    Id there a glossary out there relating to Android. I'm reasonably computer literate, but as I prep to enter the Android world I'm finding a lot of terms that one is expected to know. Is there a glossary out there with details as to the meaning of the terms? Wikipedia is good, but something specific to android would be nice. Oh, and what exactly is bootstrapping?

    As for bootstrap, it basically installs something that if triggered lets you get into a custom recovery.
