I run my computer off of a power inverter all the time. so I am aware of
their not needing a pure sine.

As for a square wave into a transformer, the math will show that the drop
from horizontal to vertical becomes dampened as a function of time, so as
to "round out" the wave pattern. It is no longer and abrupt drop, as would
be patterned in a square or rectangular pattern.
