    Hopefully this means that games will get ported to MacOS a little quicker in the future.

    I think there are several of these "DirectX-to-OpenGL" converters out there, I don't know if any of them are being utilized in any of the games available. But I know I've heard of similar things like this at least twice.

    Porting to OpenGL... Great. This is the same story that keeps coming up at different times. It doesn't matter if the technology is there if it isn't used.

    Then we could get into a debate about OpenGL, the most resource-hungry, wasteful beast out there.
