I've been doing a lot of googling on this (and also some searching on this forum which discussion regarding that topic is, I'm sorry, a bit esoteric and hard to follow) just curious if there's anyway to properly run a 64 bit armv8 distribution of Raspbian Buster.
I have a few pieces of software I'm interested in running and they have Arm Linux support but require a 64 bit userspace and armv8 as a minimum to even open. With the announcement of the pi 4 and the promise of an Arm Cortex V8 CPU I was hoping of running them finally. Seeing as the hardware is fully compliant I don't understand why I would need to be forced to run a 32 bit armv7l OS but the only official Raspbian downloads are set up like that. I have no issue with diving in and tweaking some stuff to get it to work but don't want the basic desktop programs I use to break or otherwise no longer work properly (Chromium, Firefox esr, office suite, etc). I'm also absolutely fine with just throwing another OS on an extra SD card but AFAIK there isn't a single stable 64 bit OS for the pi 4 yet.
If anyone could point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.
