That’s probably being a bit extreme.

I’m not saying DisplayLink is unimportant, only that its failure is not displaylinnk to come close to killing Macs outside the home. In an enterprise environment we first dealt with dongles and adapters and now when we found a product that worked for us we have to replace them now.
