Quick Question

So I was wondering: can you run the Raspbian operating system inside of repl.it?

From the last time I asked about VMs in repl.it,

Repl.it is more focused on Coding instead of virtualization. You can run Bash if you want, but it's not for Cloud VMs like azure. So no linux.
I guess the reason is because Repl.it is not able to handle VMs, but it can handle regular commands. Also, there might be security risks.

Raspbian is a Linux Operating System that can run bash. If you want to run bash on repl.it, click here.

Thank you for reading this. For any questions, please comment down below.

@HarperframeInc So I do have a few questions. One: if there's no Linux, then why does it say something like: Python 3.7.4 (default, Jul 9 2019, 00:06:43)
[GCC 6.3.0 20170516] on linux? Two: how would bash help in this? Also I was thinking of running it as a standalone operating system, and not running it online.

A) The servers run Linux, but none of us knows what Linux it is. By No Linux, I mean you can't run Linux on repl.it
B) I thought you wanted to run bash, sorry if that was unhelpful. I was expecting this because you asked to run a Linux operating system and I thought you wanted to run Bash.
C) Your phrasing says that you wanted to run Raspbian on Repl.it, so I thought you were talking about online. I think it would be possible to run it on anything else if it can run on a Raspberry Pi.

Sorry if I was unclear or unhelpful.

@HarperframeInc Ah, I get it now. Thank you for clearing that up.
