We were corresponding with Yannick, a.k.a. the French guy from Switzerland recently and he brought to our attention the Raspberry Pi turning Raspbian into a complete desktop OS. We love when our listeners bring these cool projects to our attention and giving us some of the use cases for them. Here is what he has to say:

As for your last question : the Raspberry Pi Foundation took Raspbian – the awesome OS that runs on all of my seven Raspberry Pis 😀 – and turn it into a complete OS for PCs and Macs, and they named it Raspberry Pi Desktop – go figure…

It looks exactly the same as Raspbian, but runs on x86 architecture – and also x64 but there are no 64 bits ISO. It is definitely one of those “lightweight” distro. It runs super fast – even in a VM -, but it’s not really sexy.

The main advantage I see with that distro is the fact that I can test my programs – did I mention I am a Linux developer ? 🙂 – with the comfort of my PC before I transfer them to the Pi. That, and the fact that I can install it and make it run on my mum’s 10-year old laptop !

Anyway, you don’t have to take my word for it, go check it out by yourself !

Thanks again for your message and for the great show ! It’s always a pleasure to notice a new episode in my podcast app.

Cheers !

Gaming

What have I been playing:

Borderlands 2. I’ve put over a dozen hours into this triple A title and believe its one of the best FPS shooters of all time second to Doom 2016. Ridiculous laugh out loud humor, great story, amazing graphics, fantastic soundtrack. A must have title that’s native to Linux. The Prequel is just as amazing.
