Linux for New Macs
Corellium released the first version of the Linux operating system for Mac computers with M1 chipsets; with the phrase “very early beta“. It was stated that the version should only be used by advanced Linux users, while others should wait.
Technology giant Apple introduced the new Mac computers that we were eagerly anticipating in November. The reason why new Macs were expected with more interest than other generations was that Apple; would no longer include Intel processors. The company has announced that it will now use its own chipset in its new Macs, and it did.
The first mac
Apple‘s first Macs came with the M1, the company’s first chipset that the company also produced for its computers. The M1 chipset offered much higher performance than Intel‘s processors, as evidenced by Apple‘s and later users. However, the change of the processor seems to cause problems for Apple users in the first place.
Apple‘s Mac computers with M1 chipsets do not offer the same software support as Intel computers. Therefore, the developers need to support the chipset for M1 Macs to run other software. Of course, operating systems were among these software.
Today, there is a good news that many Mac users have been eagerly waiting for. Corellium announced the release of the “very early beta” of the Linux operating system, which will be offered for Apple‘s Macs with M1. The statement was made by the company’s CTO, Chris Wade. It was also stated in the statement that the version released for Macs with M1 should only be used by ‘advanced users‘.
However, Chris Wade announced that all Corellium‘s Linux code for the M1 will be released under an open source license. The ‘very early beta‘ version shared by Corellium is currently unavailable, but a more available beta version will be released soon.
