Purely 64bit?

I think this is a bad idea, unless they are going to go with things like nspluginwrapper...

Todays computer industry simply isn't ready for 64bit desktops (which as far as I know is where arch targets).

I think they should consider implementing something like multilib. Arch is known for its speed and simplicity, would be a shame if their 64bit offerings weren't really relivant for desktop users...


EDIT: Simplicity of design, not necessarily use... just to clear that up...

From the article:

Arch64 does have the nspluginwrapper ready to go in the community repositories, so you can run flash on a 64bit browser.

Just because adobe won't build 64 bit flash? Geez, there is actually computer industry usage besides youtube. I don't miss it at all, been months since I've had it waste my bandwidth, actually improves the browsing experience.
