[TriEmbed] FreeRTOS Tutorial Book hardware-specific editions

I heard from Richard Barry. He said "The examples in the book use a
single LED only - they deliberately try to avoid too much board level
dependency".
 
So it sounds to me like I should just get the Generic Cortex-M3 Edition
and use the MSP432. Anyone else have an interest in freeRTOS on MSP432?
Many of us have the board now.
