With Apple's push to the App Store for Mac OS X applications, and the fact that you are not allowed to install drivers in the OS to be in the Store we are left with a hardware quandary.
Investigating USB chips for a piece of hardware we found a good chip and then discovered that it had it's own USB driver and that driver only was supported 10.5.8 (ppc/i386).
Is there a good reference for USB chips that are natively supported by the OS so that going forwards we wouldn't have to supply a driver as it would already be built in?
I'd hate to think that as I go shopping for USB chips the first thing I have to do is extract driver support for each one. It'd seem to make sense that there be a list already of approved chips.
Edit: For clarifiction. I am building a USB thingee to use with the Mac and am shopping for USB chips for the circuits. I need to know that when I hook my USB device to the Mac that I'm not going to be in Driver hell or installer hell blocking me from the App Store.
