I'd say you're probably right. Apple usually makes their machines just
for MacOS and I'd be surprised if it had some insane and stupid incompatibilities because they don't stick to standards.
My brother is having the same problem and I am asking for him. I don't understand what you mean by "Aple makes their machines just for MacOS" and "they don't stick to standards" - what standards are you referring to? so does that mean it's not going to work for me because Apple's OS is not in the norm?
As an example, above I explained how my touchpad problems were because I was missing a wifi driver. That's a ridiculous thing for Apple to have done and they're probably the only company to have come up with such an idea. Apple builds all of their products specifically for use with their other products, which means you can run into bizarre problems when trying to use other things with their products. For another example of their contempt for industry standards, their new line of laptops does not use USB ports. They have switched to their own kind of port, which requires expensive adapters to convert to USB.
I had meant to put up a notice a few days ago, but the topic hadn't had a reply in quite a while, so I assumed it was lost to the annals of history. Something bricked my laptop and now it has a kernel offset error. I've switched to a virtual machine to avoid ruining any more of my electronics.
