The low-cost Raspberry Pi Linux-based computers, which are retailing for a mere $35 (R290), have just seen the release of an official Debian-based operating system designed for the mini-computer.
The OS, called Raspbian “wheezy”, is now available as an SD card image from the Raspberry Pi Foundation. It replaces the previously recommended Debian squeeze image as the go-to OS for the Linux setup and contains “…numerous tweaks and performance improvements to the firmware, kernel and applications.”
The download clocks in at a little under 500MB and it comes with “LXDE, Midori, development tools and example source code for multimedia functions.” Arch Linux ARM and QtonPi images are also available from the Raspberry Pi Foundation for more advanced users.
