The short version is that we probably can't right now. And I am typing this to you on my MacBook Air M1 which is the greatest laptop I have ever owned. By far. And I was an original ThinkPad owner.
Here are the challenges:
- M1 is an ARM based architecture. This is a problem because we actually use some low Intel based calls (MME stuff). We can address this but not soon.
- We haven't ever done anything with Metal before. It's probably not a huge undertaking but it would take effort.
That said, I can say that we very, very much want to support it because we think the new Apple silicon is going to take a lot of market share. But it probably won't happen in the GalCiv series.
