It runs on 64-bit CPUs as if on 32. AFAIK, there are no plans for foreseeable
future for a 64-bit kernel.

I have no idea about GPT support. Does any 32-bit OS support GPT?

There are eCS mailing lists for those interested in clues to more of what's
going on.

That kind of stuff is what using the Dani drivers usually alleviated.

I use none of the native partitioners since somewhere around 1999. DFSee, while
not free, avoids potential incompatibilities, since it writes identical tables
and legacy compatible MBR code whether used booted to DOS, OS/2, Windows, Linux
or Mac.
