Raspberry Pi OS 2021-01-11 removes Flash and adds these other improvements

Raspberry Pi OS 2021-01-11

Personally, it is not one of the news related to the raspberry plate that excites me the most, but it is still of some importance. It is important because we are talking about the operating system that the company develops for its simple boards, which should work better than the rest, but I am not a big fan of either your desktop or that it is based on Debian, which makes you receive the news with less speed and frequency. In any case, for a few days we already have available Raspberry Pi OS 2021-01-11.

At some point we will have to stop looking at the past and stop mentioning the name of Raspbian when we talk about this operating system, but I do not know if that moment has yet come. And it is that Raspberry Pi OS had another name a few months ago, until the company decided to rename it. Raspberry Pi OS 2021-01-11 is the first update of 2021, and one of the most outstanding news is a must: have gotten rid of Flash Player, software whose development has been abandoned by Adobe.
