Also, you can now install the raspbian-nspawn-64 package from the official Raspbian repo. This runs a 64-bit Debian Buster 'sidekick' O/S in a lightweight container on your RPi (3B, 3B+ or 4B), integrated with your regular 32-bit Raspbian Buster userland, under the official 64-bit kernel alphanumeric just cited. More details may be found in this post. Screenshot:

Yes, but be aware that when you see '64bit' on a random website they generally mean Intel/AMD based 64bit processors / software.
That is not compatible with the Pi's 64bit Arm processors.

aarch64 ARM64 Operating Systems, each of the following offer something different:

Manjaro
https://manjaro.org/download/arm/raspbe ... de-plasma/

Ubuntu Server
https://ubuntu.com/download/raspberry-pi

balenoOS

Rather than negativity think outside the box !

Asus ChromeBox 3 Celeron is my other computer.

And since we're listing aarch64 OSes ^-^, there's also gentoo-on-rpi-64bit; screenshot:

This and a number of others are also available for installation via PINN, which is a nice way to download a bunch of 64-bit OSes onto a single (large-ish) microSD card and then boot between them, to see which suits you best.

I recently started using Manjaro arm64 and so far it has been really easy to use, The OTB experience (out of The Box) was awesome. Everything on my PI4 Worked out of the Box..No adjustments needed and all i did was overclock to 2000mhz and wella, of course I did have to overvoltage to 6 and gpu to 700 but otherwise temp is steady at 38 degress celsius. even my tempreture gauges are working great.
take a look:



I am really happy with the lookj..the desktop is KDE :D
