    Kinda unfair that Apple doesn't contribute a single bit to this though, but in the end, their users will benefit with the possibility of switching to Linux.
    I wonder who's funding all this and for which purpose...

    Many support the effort.

      So this will be the first production driver written in Rust.

        I’m just going to be excited for the installer to work under Ventura. My dumbaxx got impatient and wanted to play around with Stage Manager as I love Gnome and have despised Apple’s multitasking.

        lo and behold Ventura on my M1 Air feels like Molasses sadly

        Really eager to get Asahi with a modicum of 3D acceleration workin’!

        Can’t believe the good job these devs are doing!

          Holy shit, I thought you guys were exaggerating about the voice, but 30 seconds in it started making my head hurt lol

          I guess I'll stick to the twitter updates.

            Speaking of which, there's been a tweet storm from https://twitter.com/LinaAsahi/, with the most recent from a few minutes ago!

            GUERRILLA STREAM INCOMING!!!!!!

            I woke up and had a silly idea and something amazing happened!!!!

            You have to see this!!!!!!!!!

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0cnMUroMlQ
            IT WORKS!!!!

            GNOME runs!! Firefox works!! You can watch YouTube, play Neverball, run KDE apps, and more!! No crashes!!!

            On a native Linux GPU driver for Apple M1!!

            Check out the mini stream where I show it off!!!
            I used a cursed hack to work around a stability issue, which hurts performance, but it proves that that is the only remaining major issue!

            Once I fix it properly we'll have full performance and stability!! And then it's just Mesa driver fixes left!!!

              I'm more interested in what she's using for her Vtuber setupand whether it's available on Linux.

              Otherwise I'll just go with the path of least resistance and do my Vtuber debut on Windows where all the pieces are already available.

                    It's funded mostly via patreon.

                      That may be superseded by the NVMe rust driver.
