If you’re looking for tutorials on installing Raspberry Pi operating systems, then we have an ever-growing range of tutorials that do precisely that. They go through all the steps to installing and configuring the OS so you can get creating as soon as possible.
The range of operating systems (OS) for the Pi is continually growing as the years go on. You can find an increasing amount of ports of favorites such as Chromium and Android. For the most stable OS, I recommend sticking to Raspbian.
Every OS has its pros and cons with some better being for desktop use while others being better for servers and other tasks that don’t require a desktop. Keep this in mind when deciding which one to install.
We’re always looking for more Raspberry Pi operating systems to try out so if you have one then be sure to let us know. If you would love to stay up to day on more projects, then be sure to follow us on social media or join our mailing list.
As I mentioned above, there are plenty more operating systems (OS) on the way for the Pi so stay tuned for more.
If you’ve already settled on an operating system, but you’re entirely new to Linux, then I highly recommend checking out some guides on using the terminal/command line. A good Linux cheat sheet will help you learn a lot of the basic commands fast. You probably won’t need to know anything too advanced.
Most of the projects on this website have been designed for use with Raspbian so you may find if you’re running a different operating system that the commands and packages will differ. Keep this in mind as it might make some simple projects a little more complicated.
I hope that these Raspberry Pi operating systems tutorials help you with both choosing and installing one. Most of the installation processes are pretty simple, so it’s great for anyone new to installing a Linux based OS.
If you have some feedback, recommendations, or something else that you would like to say, then please be sure to comment on the relevant tutorial.
