Linus Torvalds benadrukt dat hij de nieuwe kernel op een Apple-laptop met een soc op basis van Arm-architectuur heeft uitgebracht, met behulp van Asahi Linux. Dit project is nodig om Linux op Apple-systemen te draaien. Hoewel hij het 'echte werk' op een ander systeem gedaan werd, zegt de ontwikkelaar lang uit te hebben gekeken naar het gebruik van Arm64-hardware voor het project.

Linus Torvalds uses an Arm-powered M2 MacBook Air to release latest Linux kernel

More people using Arm hardware will (eventually) lead to better Arm software.

We don't normally cover individual releases of the Linux kernel, partly because most updates are pretty routine. Any given Linux kernel update resolves some bugs, improves support for existing hardware, and makes some forward-looking changes in anticipation of new hardware, and kernel version 5.19 is no exception. Phoronix and OMG! Ubuntu! both have good overviews of the changes.

But there's one interesting note about this release that Linux kernel creator Linus Torvalds mentions in his release notes: The kernel update is being released using an Arm-powered laptop, specifically the M2-powered version of Apple's MacBook Air.

"It's something I've been waiting for for a loong [sic] time, and it's finally reality, thanks to the Asahi team," Torvalds writes. "We've had arm64 hardware around running Linux for a long time, but none of it has really been usable as a development platform until now."

Torvalds is running Linux on his M2 MacBook with the help of Asahi Linux, a distribution that has been working to reverse-engineer Apple's hardware. The Asahi team's goal is to send all of this work upstream into the main Linux kernel so that all distros can benefit, and Asahi has been relatively quick to add support for new Apple chips like the M2 or the M1 Ultra as they've been released.
