#1155 closed System Defect (fixed)

Platform and Architecture Fields in AppCafe are Confusing

This appears in the Installed tab (Architecture column) and Browse for Apps tab (Platform).

These fields display as "freebsd:10:x86:64" which is confusing. Am I getting a 32-bit app or a 64-bit app? Do I care, seeing that PC-BSD is 64-bit only and will do the "right thing" if an app is only available as a 32-bit version?

My suggestion would be to hide these two fields for now as there may be a case in the future where having the architecture/platform makes sense.
