Linux on ARMSUSE released the first 64-bit distribution for the Raspberry Pi 3 with its SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. OpenSUSE, Fedora and Ubuntu should be there soon.

When we reported on the potential for 64-bit Linux distributions supporting the Raspberry Pi 3 earlier this year, the server focused SUSE Linux was not even on the radar. This week, however SUSE and the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced that SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) would be the first 64-bit distro for the quad-core, Cortex-A53 based RPi 3, supporting its ARM A64 instruction set and ARMv8-A architecture.
