    Finally, I can run a minecraft server natively on M1 mac mini because the single core performance is too darn high at the performance cores.

    Can you add a user then try to delete the pi user to check all drivers, or all will be the same ones?

    kinda cool.. 👌
    had you have FreeBSD running under the M1 chip, now that would be a treat.
    after all macOS is BSD under the hood.
    peace ✌

    For any Linux nerd wondering why bother booting Linux for M1. Like why not use any other ARM alternatives. Well it’s because the M1 is the most advanced and fastest ARM SoC u can buy in the consumer market. If this Mac mini included an ARM SoC that had the power of a raspberry Pi. Why would anyone bother?

    Knew this day would come, but I didn't think it would be this soon. Cheers.

    I'm a Linux pro. I wonder why should anybody buy an M1 Apple toy and use Ubunto on it. There must be tons of ARM alternatives. I'm afraid this project is only gratifying Apple's ego. Plus, as Torvalds put it early in January, Apple must open up to developers before native graphics are implemented. So isn't it a limping Linux? I don't feel very good about it.

    Nice! Not only that I do not own an M1 Mac, I also tried out KDE Kubuntu on my Mac, using VMWare Fusion 12.

    Finally, native linux support has been achieved on the M1 Mac platform. It's good to see the list of OSes compatible with the M1 platform grow. Good video!

    This is honestly so cool. I'm still gonna use macOS because it's definitely more useful and fleshed out for the m1 macs and it's unix based anyways, but this is seriously insanely cool to see.

    This is awesome! While I'm not too big of a linux user and I don't have a M1 Mac, this is really cool, and I hope to see what comes next
