The merge is exciting, but don’t rush out to buy an Apple M1 for Linux just yet.

I still don’t know why you are wasting your time with that piece of trash and I’ll never know. We can support RISC-V development and fully liberate Pinebook Pro and MNT Reform but nooooo, we must do as Big Brother says!

I agree that we shouldn’t be giving money to companies who do not support our use cases on our hardware. But unfortunately RISC-V is years away from being close to competitive in the laptop space.

What the hell is so wrong with x86! Freedom issues? It’s 1000 times worse in arm in general, it only gets worse when you add that Apple flavor to the mix!

makes sense you have to use Linux, not being able to buy a proper OS after buying an M1 Macbook. Pathetic.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
