Announced in early August and initially planned for the end of the month, the Fedora Asahi Remix distribution is finally here for those who want to install the Fedora Linux operating system on their Apple Silicon Macs.

The distro is based on the latest Fedora Linux 39 release and ships with the KDE Plasma 5.27 LTS desktop environment by default, using Wayland.

      Inb4 apple locked down components to motherboard serial number

      But seriously, I guess the only hope is to wait for the Chinese second hand market takes off.

          It was a joke. But you can see why I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out true in the end.

          I know for a fact they’re making it impossible to make small repairs like changing the screen closed sensor. It requires a proprietary calibration tool they won’t sell, and so MacBooks can’t go to sleep when closing the screen.

          On top of changing it from a sub $ hall sensor to some proprietary bs that’s far more expensive.
