First Raspberry Pi Desktop Release Based on Debian Stretch Is Out for PCs and Macs

The company kicked off the month of December with a big announcement today, announcing that they’ve managed to rebase the Raspberry Pi Desktop OS for PCs and Macs on the latest stable Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch” operating system, as well as to release a new version of the Raspbian Stretch distro for Raspberry Pi. It’s been almost a year since Raspberry Pi Desktop was announced for PCs and Macs, but it didn’t receive a major update since then, but looking how popular it became during this time, the Raspberry Pi Foundation decided to assign a full-time team of engineers to work on operating system and port the core components to Debian Stretch.
