macOS 13 virtualization framework to support Rosetta 2 inside Linux VMs

The most interesting (to me, anyways) information that's been released due to Apple's developer conference so far:

https://developer.apple.com/documentation/virtualization/running_intel_binaries_in_linux_vms_with_rosetta

Same limitations as macOS; this does not support running an entire x86 linux distribution. It's for running x86_64 binaries inside Arm Linux inside a VM.

There are already open source projects like FEX-Emu which provide this functionality, but on Apple Silicon, Rosetta 2 should be far faster since it'll be able to take advantage of Apple's non-standard extensions to Arm designed to assist Rosetta 2.

I'm looking forward to trying this out - there's some Linux software I use which is only available in x86_64 binary format. (Xilinx Vivado, for example.)
