Corellium has released the first Linux beta for the M1-based Mac mini.
The system is completely usable, but this is the earliest beta with all the consequences: something may work poorly, something will refuse to start at all, and performance may not be at the maximum level.
Linux is now completely usable on the Mac mini M1. Booting from USB a full Ubuntu desktop (rpi). Network works via a USB c dongle. Update includes support for USB, I2C, DART. We will push changes to our GitHub and a tutorial later today. Thanks to the @CorelliumHQ team ❤️🙏 pic.twitter.com/uBDbDmvJUG

You can use Linux on your Mac mini M1 after booting from a USB drive. Chris Wade, CTO of Corellium, demonstrated how the Ubuntu distribution works. The finished solution will be published on GitHub with detailed instructions for creating a bootable disk.
