Linux 6.2: The first mainstream Linux kernel for Apple M1 chips arrives

Emotional, Burning, Unlimited Tuned Laboratory

Linux is now ready to run on modern Macs.

Linux 6.2 was released yesterday, and Linus Torvalds described the latest Linux kernel release as, “Maybe it’s not a sexy LTS release like 6.1 ended up being, but all those regular pedestrian kernels want some test love too.”

For once, I disagree with Torvalds.

By adding upstream support for the Apple M1 Pro, M1 Max, and M1 Ultra chips, newer Mac owners can look forward to running Linux on their M1-powered machines. And, for techies, that’s sexy.
