Hello moto
Issue #200. Whoa. That's a lot. I don't have anything special for it though, because every issue is special :)
Does anyone use Arch Linux on a Mac? Since this whole fiasco with my laptop, I've been thinking about if for my next laptop I should invest in getting a MacBook Pro, as they seem to be more sturdy. By that time, the M1 chips should be M2 or M3 (is that how they're going to progress?) and most software should already be able to handle the new silicon. I know Apple loves to have a completely closed system though, and I'm not sure how well the hardware plays with something like Arch. I'm not completely opposed to using MacOS, but I'd prefer to stick with what I'm already using, and would love to hear if anyone has had any experience with the Arch to Apple interplay. Anyway, here's the issue.

Ken Shirriff is back at it again with reverse engineering hardware. This time Ken dives into the circuit of a chip that is used to keep a reference voltage constant across different environments.
