Seconded. The FTDI USB-to-serial devices work well with both platforms (I was
using them for a GPS receiver for NTP time-sync'ing purposes), but they tend to
identify themselves as generic USB devices rather than as, say, a modem.
The system-provided USB drivers which come with MacOS would recognize the
latter, just as they understand USB pointing devices or mass storage devices
without a vendor-specific driver, but you need to install FTDI's driver if they
are being seen as generic USB devices....
