USB 4 spec contains thunderbolt 3, so that might improve the cable situation in a few years. Donít count on it getting any less confusing, though. https://www.pcworld....nderbolt-3.html

Perhaps we are talking past each other. Iím not mistaken when I say that for Steamís DRM-free games, you can copy the game files wherever you want and they will work without Steam installed. In my experience, many if not most indie games work this way.

On GOG, I just download the installer when buying, then back it up myself and dont have to go back to GOG again, not even for a DRM check! I can then install it on a Mac that Steam no long supports or anything I want such as offline. There is no DRM!!! Steam sucks with its intrusive DRM.

My point was you can do the exact same thing with Steam, except you need to have Steam installed to download your stuff. But for the many DRM free games you can back up the games yourself and install them on machines without steam.

There are plenty of steam games (admittedly, mostly indie) that donít have DRM. Yes, you need to use the client to download them, but I donít see that as appreciably different from GOG where you have to log into the site.

Yes, they still rely on custom kexts. They also no longer support Nvidia because they didnít update their drivers for Mojave.
