In my previous article, we learned about the basic idea of IoT devices (Raspberry Pi) and how to install Windows 10 IoT Core on Raspberry Pi 2.

In this article, I will introduce the installation process of Raspbian Jessie (the Debian flavor of Linux, officially supported by Raspberry Pi). Jessie is the official operating system for Raspberry Pi. As compared to Windows 10 IoT, Raspbian Jessie is a full desktop operating system where you can perform lots of tasks just like any PC. A lot of tools are available out of the box, like LibreOffice Suite, Java development environment etc., and you can browse the internet, configure your mails, play games etc. in this operating system. Along with these common uses, you can use this OS in your home automation projects as well.

NOOBS is a simple tool for beginners. You just need a NOOBS software in your SD card and rest of the things will be done by NOOBS itself. You can get this software by purchasing pre-installed SD cards or you can download it from here. There are two modes of this software NOOBS and NOOBS Lite.

NOOBS is an easy operating system installer which contains Raspbian. It also provides a selection of alternative operating systems which are then downloaded from the internet and installed.

NOOBS Lite contains the same operating system installer without Raspbian pre-loaded. It provides the same operating system selection menu allowing Raspbian and other images to be downloaded and installed.

To start installation, follow these steps.
