What is pi-top OS

pi-topOS, under the hood, *is* Raspbian. It contains modifications to allow it to provide functionality specific for pi-top hardware, as well as other changes/additions that pi-top have included specifically for the intended educational audience.

This decision was made to ensure that the majority of tutorials on the internet can be applied directly to pi-topOS, even if they were written specifically for Raspbian as it's provided by the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
