A.11. ‏Raspbian

Raspbian is a rebuild of Debian optimized for the popular (and inexpensive) Raspberry Pi family of single-board computers. The hardware for that platform is more powerful than what the Debian armel architecture can take advantage of, but lacks some features that would be required for armhf; so Raspbian is a kind of intermediary, rebuilt specifically for that hardware and including patches targeting this computer only.
