Since the Arch ARM website links back to this wiki, I figured it would make sense to include support for ARM in the FAQ, do you agree? More specifically, I am referring to the section titled: Q) Why would I not want to use Arch? under the point: you require support for an architecture other than x86_64, i686 or ARM."  [[User:Wingsuit|Wingsuit]] ([[User talk:Wingsuit|talk]]) 04:32, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

:I saw your edit and it reminded me of [https://mailman.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-general/2012-October/031678.html a discussion] we had some time ago. We have [[Samsung_Chromebook_(ARM)]] and [[Raspberry_Pi]] in our wiki, but both articles have a disclaimer, that ARM support is provided by Arch Linux ARM, not the original Arch Linux. There are other Arch-based distros that provide e.g. i586 support, but Arch Linux does not. -- [[User:Karol|Karol]] ([[User talk:Karol|talk]]) 04:54, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Questions about the Beginner's Guide

Questions about where the Beginner's Guide went keep getting asked on the mailing list, forums, etc. I think we should add some of these questions here. -- Rdeckard (talk) 21:32, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
