	me too.    Can you talk to Steve McKintyre and Konstantinos about this?    We've spent the last 12 months trying to get alignment / agreement across all of the distributions on this.    arm-linux-gnueabihf is the least worst, agreed option.

And I have to say, especially one of the arguments (Windows storage issue) should be irrelevant for a Linux problem.
