Today the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced a new $75 Raspberry Pi 4 8GB model, and to go along with that huge increase in RAM, they’re releasing a new 64-bit Operating System, and changing the name from ‘Raspbian’ to ‘Raspberry Pi OS.’

I’ll share my first experiences with the 64-bit OS in this video.
