Apple no longer sells general purpose computing devices. It sells you the equivalent of a TV that only plays one channel, the Apple-approved channel. With "notarization" now becoming a mandatory requirement for any application to run on macOS, you are not allowed to run any software or see any content that the Big A has not collected its own fiscal cut from.
