First Linux distribution to support Apple processors released Asahi Linux

The Asahi Linux distribution for Apple Silicon has been made available to the general public. It is the first Linux distribution to offer native support for the Apple M1 chips.

Since this is an alpha release, be aware that there may be bugs and important features missing. However, the developers promise that now “everything will move even faster.”

Asahi is a Japanese word that means “morning sun”. “We are very excited to finally take this step and start bringing Linux on Apple Silicon to everyone,” the development team wrote in a blog post. It is important to note that you do not need a jailbroken device to install Asahi Linux on your Mac. The alpha release, however, is intended primarily for “developers and advanced users.”

For Asahi Linux, you need an M1, M1 Pro, or M1 Max (excluding Mac Studio) computer with macOS 12.3 or later and at least 53 GB of free space.
