quick question: is Apple using more or less the same stack and toolchain
i.e. Mach + FBSD backbone and LLVM, etc. ? or has something very important
changed for Apple silicon?

What you are saying suggests that nothing major has changed except the LLVM
target to arm64, is this correct?

TIA, and pardon my ignorance on the matter.
