Raspberry Pi OS (previously called Raspbian)




Snippet from Wikipedia: Raspberry Pi OS

Raspberry Pi OS (formerly Raspbian) is a Debian-based operating system for Raspberry Pi. Since 2015, it has been officially provided by the Raspberry Pi Foundation as the primary operating system for the Raspberry Pi family of compact single-board computers. The first version of Raspbian was created by Mike Thompson and Peter Green as an independent project. The initial build was completed in June 2012.

Raspberry Pi OS is highly optimized for the Raspberry Pi line of compact single-board computers with ARM CPUs. It runs on every Raspberry Pi except the Pico microcontroller. Raspberry Pi OS uses a modified LXDE as its desktop environment with the Openbox stacking window manager, along with a unique theme. The distribution is shipped with a copy of the algebra program Wolfram Mathematica and a version of Minecraft called Minecraft: Pi Edition (note that Minecraft: Pi Edition is no longer installed as of the Debian bullseye update) as well as a lightweight version of the Chromium web browser.
