> no way to change the window manager

Is this actually the case? I use Linux as my primary OS, but I recall seeing xmonad running in osx on a macbook.

That xmonad was almost certainly managing the X11 apps while the native apps were being managed by the standard Apple window manager.

Most Mac users (including myself) make no regular use of any X11 app.

(In fact, shortcomings in X11 and software that relies on X11 are the main reasons I left Linux in the first place).
