Welcome to the forum.

The answer is yes to all of the above. The main operating system for the Raspberry Pi 4 is Raspbian which is a Linux distribution based on Debian Linux. There are also other Linux distributions and lots of software available.

You can find more information at the Raspberry Pi 4 official site or search Google and Youtube:


You can find several other Linux operating systems built for the Raspberry Pi on the downloads page:

also is it just a quad cor or hex core the rpi-4…??

I don’t work for Core-Electronics, I’m a customer like you. I just visit the forum when I have a few minutes free. I think you have to interact with the forum a bit to get moved up a level to change some of the settings.

The Raspberry Pi 4 is a 1.5GHz quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A72 CPU. It’s not the fastest on the market but by far the best supported. If somebody compiles their software for an ARM SBC they almost always compile it for the Raspberry PI first and often only the Raspberry Pi.
