SUSE Linux already has the first 64-bit version for Raspberry Pi 3

SUSE Linux

The latest version of Raspberry Pi is one of the most powerful versions that exists in the history of Raspberry Pi, but that sometimes has its problems such as not having adapted software for the board.

Although it is true that all Raspberry Pi have an operating system that can run as if it were a mini pcIt is also true that all the software is built on a 32-bit platform, something that limits the power of the Raspberry Pi.

But this is something that will change with SUSE Linux. The popular Gnu / Linux company has released a new version of its professional system that it is built for 64 bit motherboards And we can say that it is the first real operating system that takes advantage of all the power of the Raspberry Pi 3.

Long time Ubuntu and Fedora released versions of the Linux kernel for this board They used 64-bit technology but not the rest of the software. In contrast with this version of SUSE Linux, the entire operating system will use 64-bit technology.

SUSE Linux will be the first full 64-bit operating system for Raspberry Pi 3

Unfortunately not yet the free distribution, the OpenSUSE call, a free distribution that uses SUSE technology. At the moment it is only available for the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server operating system, a world-oriented version of the server that is compatible with Raspberry Pi.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server will make the famous Cluster project takes on great importance Well, with three or four Raspberry Pi boards, the power of our personal server will grow considerably and it will also be managed correctly, all for little money.

Possibly in no time other distributions are encouraged to do the same as SUSE Linux but for the moment users have to be content with this distribution that you can find in your official website.
