I have been using for quite some time and it's all I use on my Raspberry Pi 1 and 3 as well as Orange Pi PC, and in Virtualbox. Great for low powered devices with small storage, although I'm currently experimenting with the native PC version with a Core 2 duo which is working quite well. I appreciate how it doesn't come bloated with software I won't use.

complete rubbish. this poor excuse for a re-packaged, stripped down version of raspbian lite should not be considered an os. last update from 6.14 to 6.15 bricked my device, and there was no transition from 5 -6 without a complete reinstall. Raspbian lite is more reliable, i am going back.
