    That's fine for valve games, but aren't a lot of the cool games on steam flash based? We know how much Jobs likes flash...

    Only the games that already have a mac version will be able to run on macs. The steam client itself may run on the mac, but the windows binaries of the games it offers don't.

    This is good news. The better a platform for gaming Macs become, the harder the competition has to work to keep up/stay ahead.

    Re: News - Steam Client for Mac gets release date.

    Maybe giving mac people the ability to game with relatively modern games will push Apple to try and get better GPUs into their systems... probably not though.

    If anything i would say its bad as it might spread the steam team thinner.

    Re: News - Steam Client for Mac gets release date.

    wonder with a wider potential market though steam running on macs it might encourage devs to offer mac versions or will the extra costs in producing keep them away in which case would there be any real point in steam on mac
