    Here's a full review of Steam for the Mac.

    Definitely a positive view of Steam for Mac. :cool:

    I think it is all of the ugliness of a Cider wrap, and half the performance of a same spec Windows machine!

    It's not a Cider wrap, all Valve's games are native ports. Performance is lower than in Windows, due partially to the need for more tweaking (I'm sure there will be many updates in the next few weeks to help address it) and due also to OS X's drivers being outdated.

    Have you installed the update that came down a little while ago? Portal is already running a lot more smoothly than it was even earlier today...

    Oh, I know it is not a Cider wrap. I was just saying it looks that way because it is (maybe was, I have not updated) so un-Mac like.


    Thanks for the heads up, no I have not installed the update. After playing with Steam, and the Game Portal, yesterday I sorta gave up on it. I will install the update.
