Remember that apple has tried to lock everyone out of using their hardware, including gpus with specialized drivers, specialized firmware, specialized and proprietary network cards, etc. All done with the intent to keep their hardware and software silo isolated from everyone else and force use of only their hardware and software as a set (and in the name of profit).
That the problem can be worked around is promising. How it is done may change over time.
Apple wishes to lock users into forced upgrades with new hardware sales required.
I have never used apple products because of the hardware and software lock-in and unreasonable prices.
That was the viewpoint of Woz. Apple has always been high priced and locked in for the hardware and software since they avoided the intel compatible processors for most of their production life.
Even the Mac with the intel processors are only now, after quite a few years with all other OSes locked out, finally having Linux becoming able to install and run on them. Proprietary hardware, proprietary drivers, proprietary bios, all designed to lock out the ability for users to install commonly used OSes.
Apple has had the closed silo environment locked down from the beginning.
From the beginning of being a successful company. In terms of profit. (When other Steve took control.) And even the Mac SE (that’s when Woz decided to go.) was sold with nice hardware manual, if You knew how to use soldering iron, screwdrivers and that special long Torx pole (I still have it) You could do a lot. I was upgrading ours all the way to system 7. And processor was nicely explained in book “Computer organization and the MC68000” (good book for general understanding of computer functioning).
