There are people who havent purchased x86_64 systems yet, so i686 only iso
that fits on cd is appealing. If we wanted x86_64 iso we could just go to
archlinux.org, right?

Ive been running arch on an acer O751h since 2013. The wiki documentation
has always been a crucial part to learning the distro. I hope that
continues w the port.
