New week, check out what happened last week!

Anecdotes of science and technology

1. Run native Linux on an M1 Mac

The M1 Mac now runs native Linux without a hitch. An Alpha version of The Asahi Linux project, built for Apple’s own chips, has been released. Linux is faster than macOS for running certain programs on exactly the same hardware!

The first public alpha version of Asahi Linux has been released on the official blogging platform for developers and power users with OTA upgrade support.

To install Asahi Linux, the following requirements must be met:

  • M1, M1 Pro or M1 Max computers (except Mac Studio)
  • MacOS 12.3 or later, log in as an administrator
  • Have at least 53GB of available disk space (desktop installation). The Asahi Linux Desktop requires 15GB, but the installer keeps an additional 38GB of disk space in macOS to avoid breaking macOS updates.
  • Connect to the Internet and the installer will download 700MB to 4GB of data.
