Installs easily. Everything worked. So easy to configure for any given job. Hats off to the team.

GOOD interface for setting up small servers, rasbian, and others coud learn a lot, from the clear menu's taking care of the tricky details.

So easy to install and use. Rock solid. Meets all my needs (I run a small Web server).

Pro: small, really fast and easy to use, even for non experts as myself.
Con: installation process can be complicated for new users.
I use it on my RPi family of computers to run SETI@home. I have installed it on some RPi, some RPi2 and some RPi3. DietPi works very well in all of them.
Installation process is simple, even if you need to know what is necessary to do and be acquainted with command line.
Desktop options are OK for me as I like lightweight ones that get the job done (due to laziness, I use the lightest only to configure SETI@home in BOINC).
Supplied DietPi programs (dietpi-launcher, dietpi-config and dietpi-software, to give some examples) are really good and helpful.
If you need a very fast operating system for your RPi that optimize its resources and you do not need fancy interfaces, them, from my experience, there’s no better option them DietPi.

Pro: It is fast and extremely light.
Con: Installation process while easy enough seems to take forever to wade through.
I installed to an RPi Zero and all went well but it takes a lot of steps. It runs fast and the memory load is half or less than a full up Raspbian. No need to fear installation as it all goes on a uSD card that you can easily overwrite with another distro if you don't like it. I would not bother with it for a desktop application as the full Raspbian is more than ample for that without having to do all the extra installation.

A major design flaw in not providing an upgrade from 159. So only use DietPi in an environment of which you don't mind reinstalling once and a while.
If you don't mind than it is a lightweight OS with an easy interface to do most of you admin jobs.

if the program you need is available in their repo there is nothing better than diet-pi --- easy peasy

What it does, it does cleanly and with gusto. Where it asserts a claim of function, it functions well. It is best to approach DietPi with hopeful anticipation instead of confident expectation. It may not rise to meet your unique need; however, that said, there are several appliance functions well served by DietPi. If you are not yet comfortable with command line administration, DietPi offers you many menu-based configuration options. If you are comfortable with the command line, some of the features of this disto will be lost on you. And if you are comfortable with linux automation (ansible, puppet, chef), DietPi is YALD colored with yet another maintainer's vision of a roll-your-own offering distinguished by outreach to the ever growing congregation of "Pi-Killing" SBCs suffering from spiritual bankruptcy (lacking a sustainable community). DietPi is positioned to feed starving orphans; well fed linux consumers may find the flavor flat and unremarkable.

This is my go-to distro for the Raspberry Pi. I have run it on both a Pi2 and Pi3 for over a year. There are many options to choose from so that you can get it configured just how you want to; whether it is booting directly in to Kodi, LXDE, command line or installing Webmin or any number of optimised software options. It really is very easy to use, stable and provides tools to turn your Pi into whatever you want!
I am now running the latest version based on Debian Stretch. There are regular updates and an active community forum that gives me confidence that this is a distro that is well resourced.

Never used Debian, but this looks awesome and is hassle free to flash with etcher for Odroid C2
