Advanced images? What's different?

Tue Oct 08, 2013 4:46 am

I'm a pretty heavy Linux user and am just curious what the difference is with the advanced image. I assume the noobs has a gui? and maybe the advanced is CLI?

There is only one official Raspbian Wheezy image, the latest release 25/09/2013.

Noobs is just any easy way to install & run mutiple Distro's, as explained here:

Are you talking about the raw images ?

Those do not contain NOOBS and need a special tool to
be written to the SD card ( at least on Windows).

You can't switch between OS' if you use raw images , and you
won't have a recovery option like the one provided by NOOBS.

The provided raw images only contain a single OS.

The NOOBS setup allows the user to try different OS from a single SD card without having to download and re-image the SD card. Once an image is installed from NOOBS, it is no different than the raw 'advanced' image.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.
