Mac Steam Client

The Steam Website now offers the promised Mac Steam client, along with a number of games that can be purchased and played on both Macs and Windows PCs. There is also an updated Windows Steam client, and the change list for that follows.

  • Win32 side support for Steam Play / Steam Cloud integration with upcoming Mac titles
  • Fix a regression causing Steam to fail if installed in a path with non-ascii characters
  • Fix to grant achievements based on stat progress if progress is 100% but the achievement was not previously granted
  • Fix a case where opt-in free games like the Counter-Strike: Source Beta would not appear in the library view until installed.

"Purchase a game once and play it on your Mac or PC. Just look for the Steam Play symbol when shopping."

I can't find the quote, but they have already said that any games you have a already bought, are part of Steam Play and the Mac game client has been released you can download on the Mac.

When you buy new games, if you start out on a PC and buy a new computer that is a Mac, your games will follow you. If you are on a Mac and later switch to PC, your games will follow you.
