Is Endless OS based on Debian?

We can say that Endless OS is not based on Debian in the same sense that Ubuntu is based on Debian. But Endless OS is built from Debian.

The main difference is the Endless OS use OSTree + Flatpak to manage the base system and applications, unlike Debian / Ubuntu that uses .deb packages for the system and applications.

We can also say that the reason we use OSTree is a more solid system because the classic situation of updating a package and breaking the system does not happen.

The reason we use OSTree management is that it is a more robust system because the classic situation of updating a package and breaking the system does not happen in this method.
