Hope so. But maybe not straight away...
There's a good deal of info in the latest MagPi..
It looks like for the time being only 32-bit raspbian will be available..
From and interview with Eban Upton:
“Although it is a 64‑bit
, we’re using it as just a faster
,” he reveals about
the Pi 3’s central processing unit.
“I can imagine there’d be some
real benefits [to 64-bit code].
The downside is that you do
really create a separate world. To
access that benefit, you’d have to
have two operating systems. I’m
hoping that someone will come
and demonstrate to me that this
is a good idea
