It seems I block 10 _million_ attempts per week, 16 times each second, of my Mac reaching out to iCloud which I don't use in any way (and therefore deny connections to).

@ton I’m keeping a close eye on asahilinux.org/ and hopefully the BSD community is close behind

@dch Interesting. So if I bought an M1 Mac, I couldn’t just load Fedora, Ubuntu etc. as I could with my old Macs?

@ton gosh… that is a lot of calls! And why I am persevering with Linux on one of my machines. I will crack the current workflow problems.

@robert @dch it's a lot of retries indeed, there would be so much less if I allowed connection. I don't understand a design of process that faced with no connection tries again 16x per second.
