Apple M Series Silicon Chips

We are aware that Apple has released its new silicon M chip series.  Currently Apple has made the complete transition to all their computer products.  SE computing will be recommending users checking with software manufacturers, if running specific software outside the standard SE list.  The M series silicon chip currently does NOT support a virtual Microsoft Windows 10 installation via Boot Camp.  Which will hinder many of our users that require this feature via Boot Camp. is a web-based plagiarism prevention and detection tool. Student work is checked against a database for any matches between submitted papers and any internet content or previously submitted work.
