    I am waiting for a mmorpg game that I have played for years on my PC to come out for Mac so I can play it on my new iBook. Anyways one of the scripters and I were talkign and he told me that a linux c++ version is coming out today and a Mac version next month. I always thought that linux was a minority in terms of os' and that the Mac version would come out earlier. But no it seems that only 1.5% of computer users use macs (according to the game company).

    I really am curious. What percent (roughly of course) of computer users use macs? I always thought that it'd be over 10% since I know alot of people who use Macs at home. Or is this 1.5% figuare about right?

    the number varies from 2-20% depending on how you count the number of people.
    ie the percentage of people who have used/owned a Mac in their life: 5-40% (mostly in schools and at work)
    but the percentage of people who buy their first Macs in any given year 3%, etc.

    more games for macs!

    Yeah, I feel ya. I want to play the new command & conquer Generals game, but no, it's not out for Mac's:( . Virtual PC won't work because there is no physical PC hardware to run the game off of. But I don't want to buy a $600 PC for a couple games. I'll keep my Apple...can't wait till my iPod gets here:D
