In addition to the official operating system Raspbian, the Raspberry Pi also supports systems such as Windows 10 IoT Core, Ubuntu Core, and OpenElec. Now, Endless OS will soon join the ranks.
At the CES 2020, Endless showed live how to run the Endless OS on a Raspberry Pi 4 B with 4GB of RAM. The company’s founder, Matt Dalio, said that a public beta will be available in the next few weeks.
Endless OS is a Linux-based operating system that uses a custom desktop environment derived from GNOME 3. It is designed to provide a concise and streamlined user experience and can be used on computers with various configurations, but it has never been available on a Raspberry Pi.
An Endless Inc. company representative reminded us that the Raspberry Pi version of the operating system will require Pi 4 B. The demo unit at CES used a Pi 4B with 4GB of RAM, but it is unclear whether a 2GB or 1GB model will work equally well.
