Great news!
I had few applications that I use in Windows because they where available only for 64bit in Linux, now I can do the final switch to ArcheOS!
So there will be two different dowloads right? 32 and 64?
Can't wait to do this... any rugh date for the realese date?
Regarding the galileo board I will give some feedback when I get one, buth I rather wait for ArcheOs 5 to come out.
Good work everyone!
