Re: First RPi2, First Post

That 3.8 also contains a lot of other stuff, not just the OS. Linux itself (the kernel) is about 3 MB or so IIRC. Mathematica, Scratch, Sonic Pi, loads of other stuff make up the rest of the space etc. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------...

Why is the Raspbian so large?

Just learned about these cool boards about a month ago.

Was easy to setup took less than 30 minutes to go from shipping box to a useable wifi enabled computer.

So far, all I got to say is 3,138mb for os? Reminds me of M$Windows bloat ware.
