Nope that is just wrong.


Welcome to Raspbian

Raspbian is a free operating system based on Debian optimized for the Raspberry Pi hardware. An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your Raspberry Pi run. However, Raspbian provides more than a pure OS: it comes with over 35,000 packages, pre-compiled software bundled in a nice format for easy installation on your Raspberry Pi.

The initial build of over 35,000 Raspbian packages, optimized for best performance on the Raspberry Pi, was completed in June of 2012. However, Raspbian is still under active development with an emphasis on improving the stability and performance of as many Debian packages as possible.

Note: Raspbian is not affiliated with the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Raspbian was created by a small, dedicated team of developers that are fans of the Raspberry Pi hardware, the educational goals of the Raspberry Pi Foundation and, of course, the Debian Project.

Why are you trying to tell someone that has used raspberry pi since the original pi came out things that are just not true.

I also build custom OS for the raspberry pi platform and I am well versed with them. I have approx a dozen of them from rpi to rpi 5

I have used them for servers on the network including the original pi.

Yes I am aware of theis in the foundation page:

Your Raspberry Pi needs an operating system to work. This is it. Raspberry Pi OS (previously called Raspbian) is our official supported operating system.

The new OS called Raspberry Pi OS is a new animal.  The foundation used raspian and the the Raspberry Pi OS is the foundations, developed by the foundation.

Just one huge problem with all this, the NIH syndrome rules supreme as far as your forum is concerned, I asked about a realtime kernel 3 times so I could run linuxcnc on an rpi3b many years ago. Some body took umbrage and I have been blackholed from posting to the forum since, about 6 or 7 years ago. But I managed to get a realtime 4.19 built and ran it for quite sometime, 6 years, 2 on the rpi3b, now 4 years on a 4b. After I figured out how to install it. Uptimes in years from my method. The forum supports music video to the near exclusion of a heck of a lot of other stuff the pi can do. So when I got into 3d printers, it was on bananapi-m5's running armbian. Support by Igor and friends has been so good I throw a $20 bill in the armbian kitty every month. TANSTAAFL folks. Natures only 100% true law.
