There are 2 current releases of Raspbian:

Rasbian Stretch with Desktop

Raspbian Stretch Lite

https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/


P.I.X.E.L. was the name of the Desktop Environment in Raspbian Jessie which was updated and replaced by Raspberry Pi Desktop.


PIXEL was also the name for the original Debian x86 Jessie release.


Raspberry Pi Desktop environment is common to both the current Raspbian Stretch with Desktop and Debian x86 with Desktop.

Just out of interest, where have you got the name Pixel from? We stopped using that a year ago, but people keep using it, so would be interested to know why.

The reason for change was a complaint from Google over the use the name.

Look no further than Google.
Numerous referances.
A real problem with the net.

It was only in use for what, a month?
Personally, I say Google can shove off. They can ask the Raspberry Pi foundation to stop calling their OS "Pixel" (and then rub it in their face by calling their latest Android OS 'Pie') but they cannot stop the consumer market calling it whatever they will.

I hereby suggest we nickname it (unofficially, of course) the 'Pixel' desktop xD

No no no, that's back to front. Start referring to Android 9 as "Pi" and feel smug at the marketing saving in comparison with the makers of chocolate wafers or black biscuits.

If you know how to edit the splash screen of stretch then edit it to display PIXEL instead.

its your own special copy now...

Come to me with 'problems' and I'll help you find solutions"

Some people be like:
"Help me! Am drowning! But dont you dare touch me nor come near me!"
