I recently read an article, talking about Microsoft’s new update to VSCode that makes it run natively on M1 Macs. That made me curious as to what pitfalls developers (mainly web developers, of course) have faced since trying to make the switch.
We all know that new OS releases take time to get used to because our favorite apps have to be updated to work with them, and it’s been pretty well known that several, if not a lot of apps have yet to make a smooth transition to Big Sur due to how novel it still is. I thought that it’d be useful for everyone, me included, to know what we’d end up sacrificing (in terms of both app availability and overall user experience) if we were to make the jump to the M1 Macs right now, while also giving us a good estimated wait time to make the transition.
Information regarding the practicality of relying on Rosetta 2 would also be well appreciated! Of course, while I’m mainly curious about the experience in shifting to the new M1s from the developer’s perspective, it doesn’t hurt to add info regarding the general experience as a whole, beyond that of development.
Thanks in advance to those who provide feedback on their experience!
