Raspbian is a Debian derivative targetting armv6 devices with vfpv2. Primarily but not exclusively the raspberry pi. We are based on debian armhf but with reduced compiler defaults to that our binaries will run on such devices.

- Distribution type: Raspbian itself focuses on operation of a repository, various parties produce both installers and premade images based on it.
- Debian derivative model: uses Debian source packages and architecture independent (arch all) binary packages, architecture specific binary packages are rebuilt, some packages are added or modified.
- Based on: Releases are based on Debian olstable, stable and testing, some packages may be pulled from unstable or experimental when deemed necessary but we try to keep this to a minimum.
- Interfaces: console and 2D X desktops (lxde, xfce, mate etc) are supported, 3D X desktops are unlikely to be suitable due to lack of intergration between the GPU drivers and X.
