Another OS that has dropped support for 32-bit architecture. This is probably not an issue for most users as 32-bit processors are less common these days. If you have an older machine with a 32-bit processor, you can't slap on the latest and greatest *nix OS.

PC-BSD also dropped 32-bit support a year ago.

Thanks to the underground cabling, in Finland the last time I witnessed personally witnessed a power outage was in 2006 in thunderstorm, lasting for 2 minutes.

I can confirm this. In Finland you get premium electricity in most places. On the other hand, the amount of "sick" buildings is cropping up: there's moisture in structures, improperly configured ventilation, poor heating, and whatnot. :( But hey, you get proper power to read Slashdot.

Actually that story seems to still continue with two of the disks approaching 1.5 PB written.
