AFAIK a 64-bit OS still runs 32-bit applications, so it shouldn't break backwards compatibility.
Wrong sort of backwards compatibility. We need the OS to work on ALL version of the Pi, including the ones with 32bit cores. A 64 bit kernel will not run on a 32 bit core.
64 bit is coming. Meanwhile, 32 bit works for the vast majority of users. Like, 99.99999% of them.
Can you tell how far you are with the 64bit?
I have 2x Pi 3 B+ and 8* Pi 4 4 GB at home.
Only fot testing some technologies. At the moment I run PostgreSQL, Open-MPI, Slurm, Docker, some Java Applications, ... on my infrastructure. I'm using Raspbian Buster Lite and happy with this. But 64bit will be good, cause at the moment I can't install some tools.
