Frankly, while I’m super happy user of Ubuntu on desktop and servers, I’ve been quite unsatisfied with Ubuntu for Raspberry Pi. Mostly, cause it ruined a few of my SD cards. I’ve realised that writing file access info to the card was one of the key factor here. Unfortunately, Ubuntu for RPi won’t but with noatime… while latest Rasbian has it by defualt.
What I like a lot about Raspbian Stretch Lite, is that beside natively supporting all Raspberry Pi features, it’s also cross platform compatible – it works super well on both, RPi2 and RPi3.
And yes, this blog among few other things is server from RPi2 🙂
