I want to know if there is any useful advice on elite dangerous around
a very interesting game which is windoze originated.
and plays better on it
I know that, played it myself ....on W10....but on Mac, not sure there's anything you can do....
What kind of "useful advice" are you looking for? Your question is quite vague.
Elite: Dangerous runs on Mac. You can use USB joysticks, etc. What is missing from the Mac version is the Horizons expansion, this is Windows-only. So, if you want to be able to play/use the Horizons expansion then you need Windows, everything else is or should be the same between Mac and Windows gameplay.
This is old, but may be somewhat useful:
I used to play, but I burned out with the routine.
My useful advice would be to play it in VR with a powerful system and HOTAS. Immersive.
It's always harder to play games on mac because they are not always optimized for it. You will have to find the good settings.
I play it quite a bit, but on Windows. Because OpenGL on macOS lacks compute shaders (and porting to Metal isn't practical) only the first season is available in the Mac version, so you miss out on quite a lot. On the Windows version I have TrackIR too (head-tracking) which is a great addition to the game, and isn't officially supported on macOS.
