Also: While I never plan to buy an "Apple Silicon" device and assume most of you don't want to either, I think it's important that we prepare for a future where they will have significant market share. Apple M1 is derived from their mobile SoCs, which already have a significant market share.
Having Free Software on these should be a priority. Apple is scummy and most of us don't like them, but they're scummy because they control "users". Let's take the controls away from them.
Just a signal boost: Hector Martin/marcan, knowing for his work in fail0verflow (namely porting the Linux kernel to the PS4), now has a Patreon where you can fund his adventures in porting the Linux kernel to Apple M1: https://www.patreon.com/marcan
He's having to document the SoC's functions from scratch, which is a ton of work, so throw him a few bucks if you can.
