Lilbits: Why the Steam Deck OS is based on Arch Linux, Google’s Tensor chip has a Samsung Exynos processor (probably) and runs Windows 11 on Macs with M1 chips


A new version of Parallels virtualization software is here, and it promises to let you run Windows 11 on a Mac, whether you have a model with an Intel or Apple Silicon chip. Clues to the technology used in Google’s first smartphone processor are emerging, and at least one key component might not be designed by Google at all: the Google Tensor chip appears to have a Samsung Exynos processor. And a Valve rep explains why the upcoming Steam Deck portable gaming PC will run an Arch Linux-based version of Steam OS rather than Debian.
