that's a bummer I need a new mac for coding, I manly use docker, rvm, iterm, vim and brave browser.

I'm not too worried to be honest. Things will get adjusted and everything will be fine.
Thx for the episode though :)

I think that they will get things in order by the time the consumer hardware is released. I'm sure that they will have virtualization support and Electron will be working as well. My main concern is the Rosetta2 performance and what that will look like on the final products. Hopefully with some of the virtualization support, it will be faster, but it's a wait and see I suppose.

Well that sure was interesting. I expect the ARM Macs to have far less "grunt", which will be a first for Apple. The PowerPC -> Intel move which coincided with the previous Rosetta had a move to a more powerful CPU on its side. This time around, Apple is trading raw performance for efficiency, so I predict Rosetta 2 will be significantly slower than Rosetta 1, to the point that a lot of apps will be considered unusable.

I am developing on ARM platforms at the moment and I am trying to set up a more efficient workflow using cross-compilation on a different PC because the build time on ARM is miserable. I wonder if this will make "cloud build" workflows more popular?

David Kimura PRO said about 2 years ago on Apple Silicon Developer Transition Kit :
I think that we could really see an era where Ruby on Rails development starts moving away from Apple.  Windows/Docker with WSL2 is very viable today and Linux is always pretty solid. macOS had a lot of support with it's spit and polish, but what good is it if Nokogiri takes an hour to install. However, I do believe that it is too quick to judge and we need to see what things are like when the official consumer hardware is released. Hopefully Apple does do a trade-in on the DTK like they did the last time with the iMac DTK.

Wow, that looked doable.....a whole day trying to install ruby in any possible way (build, rbenv, ram, asdf). hell of nightmare of openssl version mismatch....

M1 chips and Big Sur are absolutely not ready for developers, stay away !!!!
