Apple has not respect for the ecosystem that their products are part of except when those products are apples. It has resulted in the decline in Macs over the years and its going to continue to be the decline of Macs. If Microsoft can perform major upgrades without crippling everything that is integrated their OS then only reason that Apple can not is because they do not wish to.

Most enterprise IT departments are hostile towards Macs. It has always been like that, because Macs are a niche product and expensive compared to cheap Dell/ HP laptops which you buy in bulk anyway. However, Windows is not always an option. Some software doesn't run on Windows e.g. design tools like Sketch, Flinto, and Xcode.

DisplayLink technology is being used across many major vendors. It's not some small 3rd party chop shop piece of hardware. So yes, Apple's QA failed here big.
