In a surprise, though welcome, move, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has made available a slimmed-down version of the Raspbian operating system image. I haven’t tried it myself, but I imagine it does away with most, if not all, of the bundled software on the full version. The download is a svelte 375MB and expands to an image 1.3GB in size. It’s sure to be popular amongst those who just want a bare-bones installation for using the command line and those who have loads of 4GB SD cards lying about. Good move folks!
