Raspbian is a free operating system based on GNU / Linux distribution Debian, and optimized for the smallest computer in the world, the Raspberry Pi.
Raspbian not simply provides a basic operating system, it also comes with over 35,000 packages, that is to say pre-compiled software delivered in a format optimized for easy installation on your Raspberry Pi via Package managers.
The first version of 35,000 Raspbian packages optimized for Raspberry Pi, was completed in June 2012.
Nevertheless, Raspbian is still in development, with priority to improving the stability and performance of a maximum possible Debian packages.
The Raspberry Pi is a wonderful raspberry, but it is nevertheless endowed with a power less than a modern computer. Therefore, it is preferable to install a system optimized for the Raspberry.
Raspbian was created with this in mind, and is therefore particularly suitable for Raspberry.
Moreover, as a Debian-derived distribution, it meets most of the vast Debian documentation.
Finally, Raspbian is probably the most used distribution for Raspberry , and therefore enjoys a broad and active community.
