Hi Angelo, thanks for your comment :)

Actually quite the opposite — if you read the “To be fair” section I make it pretty clear that this has the potential of a dream processor.

And you’re right, many of the glitches that I reported could well be Big Sur related rather than specifically M1… although arch flag ambiguities across the ecosystem are definitely related to it!

As far as development setup goes, mine is mostly very standard (and has been stable and time tested across many developers on many machines)… one of the reasons why I’m surprised by the variation in experience that people have had.
