    Tried Raspbian Lite? Problem with this question that 'best' is very much a matter of opinion and that type of question is not really suited for SE. – Dirk Mar 14 '19 at 19:49

    You might like to look at the Definitive List of Operating Systems on the site; asking for the "best" is probably, as Dirk noted, not ideal for this site. Be sure to read the tour for more info. – Aurora0001 Mar 19 '19 at 17:48
