    ramawatar reacted to Igor in What is the difference between Armbian and Debian Linux   
    I am not sure if this is what you want to know, but:

    - Debian.org or Ubuntu.com officially does not support any of those boards/boxes,
    - Armbian userspace has many small but vital performance or security adjustments,
    - Armbian fancy some kernel development and a lot of its maintaining. Debian relies on upstream sources for ARM hardware which can be years behind and/or lack of many functions,
    - Armbian userspace is lean, clean but 100% Debian (or Ubuntu) compatible
    - many stock Debian bugs are fixed on the way, "better than original :)"
    - a build system is a central part of this whole ecosystem. You can DIY. Debian much harder.
    - dedicated support forums per boards/boxes
    - plug and play vs. complicated install scenarios on Stock Debian
    - unified development scenarios and user experience vs. mess of different setup instructions scattered all around
    I must have forgotten many other important points
