who are setting themselves up for potential disappointment in hoping this means to expect Steam for MacOS.
My steam catalog of games is the one thing that keeps me from buying a mac for home.
Good luck getting all those to run...
The Mac has some of the smaller games already like Peggle and the like, but it lacks that one-stop-shop Steam store that users either love or hate.
I've tried straying from normal PC games save for the rare occasion and focus a little more on Console gaming. But I still have a BootCamp/Windows7 partition on my older Mac for the occasional purchase.
If the Valve engineers are working on some native Valve games (L4Dead, Half-Life 2.x, etc) then that would be cool.
If it's just to get a Steam platform running so people can buy Peggle/PlantsVsZombies/etc then that's alright too, just not as good.
