     Changing the font color to CornFlowerBlue means little or nothing
to me. Feels like marketing. What is really needed is a few more common
architectures such as the IBM POWER9 ppc64le as a prime example. The
limitation of AMD64 and ( excuse me ) 32-bit i386 is just terrible. At
some point people such as myself will want to get away from SystemD and
that means Devuan linux. However the x86 world is horrific for many
reasons.  Too many to list. The aarch64 world is working well and we
should accept that the IBM POWER systems are the big league. It is only
a matter of time before we have multi-socket RISC-V rc64imafdc machines
also. If we are truely blessed we may see "Q" in there for quad-math
just like the IBM POWER9 systems.
