It is true that only Windows PCs have to use the "slowdown technique",
right? Not Macs.

Well, most USB to serial adapters (NOT ALL) use the Prolific PL 2303
chipset. There is a MacOS X driver for these adapters available online

which adapter uses what chipset. And they are wayyyyy cheaper than the
Keyspan one.
