BTW on FB textmode and colors, do vt100 color numbers 100-108 work, they are "bright" versions of normal text bg colors 40-49. Visually it colors appear identical as non-bright... Well it's just for tetris, and generally completely unimportant :)
that's correct, due to IBM PC legacy, linux console doesn't support the bright background colors as separate color, the trick was always to use blink (SGR parameter 5), this sets the attribute bit in question

From memory, I think Apple included native FTDI drivers from High Sierra (10.13 - maybe even Sierra 10.12) onwards and in my old private ujprog builds I had the kext lines commented out.
Probably if you had the FTDI written drivers installed before that, the automatic upgrades grandfathered them in. There is a lot of outdated information on MacOS and FTDI on the web. Maybe it makes sense to have a few lines about this in a Getting Started page for
