"The overall opinion of the developers is that the x86_64 port
is now complete enough to justify this decision and that this is in
keeping with Arch's philosophy of supporting current generation
hardware. The x86_64 architecture has been available since 2002
(compared to i686 which is from 1995), and we believe most of our
i686 users have x86_64 compatible hardware."
