Many thanks to Alyssa Rosenzweig and Asahi Linux.

From asahilinux.org about page:

<<...Asahi Linux is a project and community with the goal of porting Linux to Apple Silicon Macs, starting with the 2020 M1 Mac Mini, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro.

Our goal is not just to make Linux run on these machines but to polish it to the point where it can be used as a daily OS. Doing this requires a tremendous amount of work, as Apple Silicon is an entirely undocumented platform. In particular, we will be reverse engineering the Apple GPU architecture and developing an open-source driver for it...>>

So they will be at it for quite some time even once they have a workable daily OS.

Also as you mentioned this is not the only thing Alyssa Rosenzweig is doing
