    More likely then not, they were playing it in BootCamp.

    Bootcamp is an OSX app that lets you install Windows. No emulation or anything like that, so no slow down compared to using Crossover and the like.

    There is no Mac port for L4D so you have to play it in CrossOver, Parallels, VMWare and BootCamp.

    Just Wiki it or go to an Apple Store and they will tell you everything you need to know about it and how to set it up.

    A legal copy of XP or Vista, man. Search the forums for Boot Camp help.

    Also, if you have Leopard, you already have it. If you have Tiger, you will have to set your clock before December 31, 2007 to use it.
