Given the added improvement of the Mac OSX running a Unix-based operating system with Intel processors, it doesn't' take the programmers long to cross platforms. I'm a little surprised that Apple is actually doing something right here. It feels like a perfect win-win for Steam and Mac to work together. I've known plenty of Mac Book users installing Windows XP on separate partitions. Some of the hold backs for Mac adopters are in large part due to the lack of game support. So what are your thoughts on this matter?

"Valve reckons a combination of changes to its own Steam code and the latest graphics update available from Apple today removes a variety of software bottlenecks, resulting in significant graphics performance enhancements for Mac gamers.. "The Snow Leopard Graphics Update is detailed here. There are lots of juicy technical details from Steam here if that sort of thing gets your motor running." | More

i've been running OSX for years and have always been able to find good RPG's and FPS's to play. When Cider came out it made a huge difference. The big step though was when Apple switched from the Motorola "G" chips to the Intel chips.
