I have version on my MacBook Pro. I consider it a poor substitute for 
the Windows version. I can't turn off the blinking cursor (extremely 
annoying!), I can't change the background color (white background gives me a 
headache), hotkeys don't work, etc. Is there an alternative binary that I could 

Not sure what the problems are there but, for the record, I use the LyX 
binaries from lyx.org on both my MacBook Pro (M1 chip) and a Windows laptop and 
the functionality is pretty much identical. It does appear that you are stuck 
with a blinking cursor (since that’s an OS level thing), but I have no problem 
changing the background color (did you uncheck “Use system colors”?), and 
cursor movement keys and other shortcuts work identically in both versions. 
(Maybe you mean something more by “hotkeys”?)

* hotkeys are somewhat different since one uses the Command key instead of Ctrl at least * cursor movement is slightly different to match what is expected on a mac, but this is controllable through "Preferences>Editing>Use mac-style cursor movement". * indeed to change the background (instead of the OS one), uncheck "Use System colors".
