To the best of my knowledge, the M1 version of Parallels creates ARM virtual machines, not x86 emulators. The Parallels sites says that you can use the M1 version of Parallels to run Windows for ARM Insider previews.

I believe that Windows for ARM contains Intel emulation code that allows it to run some Wintel binaries. However, Microsoft is now saying that running Windows 11 for ARM on M1 Macs "is not a supported scenario"; whether in a VM or directly on the hardware.

Because Linux and a lot of the applications that run on it are Open Source and/or Free Software, you can get (or build) ARM versions of Linux and many Linux applications to run within a virtual machine on a M1-based Mac. But you couldn't just install and run Intel Linux binaries.

Good info as usual, Tom_N.

I think if OP P450 wants to run Windows VMs on a Macbook, he/she should get an Intel Macbook 16 before they disappear.

Just checked, and for Ubuntu 20.04 only the server version is available for ARM - no desktop.
