Those days literally never existed, not even in the 90s. Apple has been including updates to monitors as part of the OS updates for at least 15 years (probably longer). In the 90s and before, monitors were upgraded it just happened on the manufacturing line and consumers were none the wiser.

If only it could run tvOS native I’d buy it in a heartbeat. Heck even if I could plug my aTV in it would be something.
