About a year and a half ago, Tritton Tech announced they’d deliver Mac Mini support for their See2 USB-SVGA adapter ready by, oh say, July 2005. The See2 allows users to add an extra monitor through a USB port without having to add a monitor card–very convenient if you own a mini or laptop.
I gave them a call this morning to see where things were at. The Tritton rep I talked to said that Macintosh support was proving much harder than they expected, primarily because of Apple’s complete indifference to their needs and total lack of support. (Edited to note: This is a summary of what I was told. This is not my personal editorial opinion about Apple. ) So when will the Mac See2 driver be ready? “Not any time soon,” I was told. “Maybe another year out. If we get lucky.” He added that you could use a See2 unit today on the Mac Mini, so long as you were willing to boot into Windows.
