There are several reasons why the Raspberry Pi OS operating system aka Raspbian is so popular for the Raspberry Pi computer:

  1. Intuitive use similar to commercial operating systems such as Microsoft Windows or Mac OS
  2. An advanced array of programs that are accessible via the user interface and the package sources via “apt”
  3. The operating system has been specifically developed for the hardware of the Raspberry Pi computer models and thus very efficient without overloading the resources of the system

And the enticing raspberry icon simply makes you want more! 🙂
