I have to give Apple credit on their processor. Seems like it's completely wasted on macOS though. Hopefully the M2 doesn't torpedo all the work the Asahi Linux Project has done.
@mike Asahi Linux knows exactly what they are going into. Building software against the vendor is a Pandora's box, and I can't help but feel that a lot of it is wasted effort.
I say that as someone who RE'd drivers myself.
@email@example.com I hope so, too. Although I primarily use macOS, I’d like my next laptop to be useable for as long as possible. And the option to install Linux will ensure that’s the case.
@mike I don't bother to watch Apple events anymore, despite having been a massive fan in another lifetime. But catching up on the tech news I did see all the announcements and indeed the M2 looks very impressive. If I'm not mistaken something like 2x as fast as an i7..... Damn.
