    Love the fact that it's fully based on the raspbian just stripped down to the minimum. This means we can get always the most up to date packages, updates, commands and improvements while enabling a fully customized incremental approach of just adding what you need in each image. Fast to download and deploy on new sd. I now start all my cards with this distro and install what I need in top.

    After trying different images, we found that this image is just what we need for our RPi-based servers. Thank you for your work!

    Was looking for a Linux distrib that fits in a 1 GB sd card. Perfect for my needs :)

    At last! I've been loking for a "server" version of Raspian for nearly a year, since I had my first pi. I've been having great fun learning while forming pi's into various server roles (household NAS, dlna media server, camera with web streaming, C development, etc). For all these purposes I haven't needed graphics and use the machines "headless", accessing them via ssh over the network. I've therefore been trying to slim down the rasbian image to make it easier and faster to store, backup, copy, etc. As well as to fit onto cheap smaller sd cards. This project is *exactly* what I've been looking for, as it's a "from scratch" build, rather than a hacked about raspian with a lot of artifacts remaining from the unwanted graphics and gaming environments, which is all I could achieve previously. I now have a stored customised minibian image, with a couple of other essentials added (dstat, mdadm, etc) and can cut a fresh card in a couple of minutes! Thanks a lot for this great work, and I hope the foundation put your image on their official download site, as I'm certain many other folks will find it just as useful.
