I just purchased the new 24" iMac with M1 chip having made the switch from pc to Apple. I have never used apple's Photo program and was curious if anyone recommends this program for photo editing.

I use it. It’s not as powerful and robust as PS or LR, but it is very good, and it’s free.

I have used 'Photos' in conjunction with Affinity. Can do most of the things I need to work with my photos.

So you use an M1 but you’ve never considered exploring what it offers ?
A sign of brilliance, I spoze ...

I’m sorry, but to never consider using it so you can form an opinion about it makes no sense. It’s free and if you don’t like it you can stop. No harm no foul.

I've never heard it put so eloquently. I'll have to remember that.

As the idjit circus winds on, it’s looking like you will be the pioneer that works with it, and others will later be wanting your advice on using it. Acoarst no one should be asking advice about buying it (but someone likely will ... ).

I would be in his camp. I'm not considering an M1 since I've been using Windows for 40 years now without problems, but even if I were to get one I would stick with what works for me (LR/PS). I have no reason to try something new and it's not because I'm not curious. It's just because my reflexes and muscle memory is defined by the software I use now and have been using for a long time. At my age, reflexes rule. And it's not because I can't learn new things. I learned to program in Python last year. It's because I don't see any point to learning different things when I have something that works, and works well.

I considered the M1 a few months ago. But I looked at reviews and decided it was not going to add enough to offset the inconvenience of switching systems from Windows to Mac.

When you switch software there are consequences. Editors are not identical. Each one has its own methods and quirks. To use the software properly you have to understand all the details. If you want to go back and re-edit something you did 5-10 years ago, you may have to start over from scratch.

Youth is addicted to new things. Switching from one system to another is like what your stockbroker does: frequent trades to maximize his fees. It's called 'Churning'.

If a new thing has a feature that I consider important, I will consider switching. But I have not seen new features that have enticed me. (The same comment applies to camera bodies. I have been tempted by bodies that offer focus bracketing. But it is not sufficiently important to me to consider another camera purchase).
