Although officially not supported by Apple, one touch screen (Acer T232HL) worked even withouth any additional driver. However, the second Acer T232HL required the installation of a driver, as the system could not distinguish, which monitor was touched.

The combination of two Acer T232HL with Touch-Base driver are now working for more than one year pretty well (with OS X El Capitan and macOS Sierra).

Because of the lack of choice for touch screens for Mac does that mean a Windows system is prefered?

Questions like these generally start a religious war :wink:

I think that there are many reasons for the one or the other platform. But I would argue, that the missing native touch screen support is no reason not to use a Mac. The good thing is that HW leaves you the choice :D
