But ArchLinuxARM[1] supports this machine quite well, and although it 
doesn't include everything available in x86_64 Arch Linux, it does 
include probably >99% of the available packages. I use it here on my 
primary machine, which is an Odroid N2, something a little harder to 
find than a Raspberry Pi 4, but it only has 4GB of RAM, and costs a bit 
more. It does have 6 processor cores instead of 4, and the eMMC support 
makes it run a good deal faster as well.
