For anyone who doesn't know Transgaming is a group of programers who offer an api for linux that allows linux (on x68) to play directx games. Obviously with the recent switch to x86 processors for the Mac I was interested to see what Transgaming was thinking about that. I wrote them an email.. "With the recent switch of CPU architecture for the Mac platform switching to x86 based hardware. I believe you may find in a years time a new market for your winex based software. Since OSX is already UNIX based, and can run LINUX compiled binaries under X11, I feel that your company could profit heavily if they take the time to write an easy to use mac version of your software. You should also know that developers can pickup a test system from apple for $999 with a P4 in it runing OSX 10.4.1 (though I would imagine if you talked with apple they might let you have one for far less when they realize what you can bring to the mac platform). Thank you, Jared Kipe" To which they responded.. "Hello TransGaming, like the rest of the world, was surprised to hear of Apple's announcement to move from IBM PowerPC to Intel x86 processors. We will continue to stay apprised of the public announcements that Apple makes regarding this matter and will assess the opportunities for TransGaming at a later date when we have a more complete picture of Apple's strategy. -- Lucas Smithen Quality Assurance and Technical Support TransGaming Technologies email@example.com -- Let the Games Begin!" Short of Aspyr, or someone, else doing something similar; I believe this will be the best thing for gaming on the mac platform.
