Are we ever going to get SFM for Mac?
I really want to use, and unfortunately I don't have a computer that runs Windows. So I was wondering if we were ever going to get a Mac compatible version?

eventually, but not for awhile, least don't expect it till after it comes out of beta.

also, have you tried running it with Wine?

While it may work a bit with Wine on Linux, I don't think it'll get any better with Mac.
We'll just have to wait and see if Valve ports it. They aren't even done with this version of SFM, give it time.

Why don't you use Bootcamp to install windows 7?

OS10 is a virus....

You know Macs DO get viruses right? I find it rather dishonest of Apple to continue flashing the "immunity to viruses" sales pitch. That might have been true... in 1980. Since then a lot of Mac viruses have surfaced.

I'm not saying there's no reason to get a Mac (I don't know of any but that's irrelevant), but "no viruses" is not one of them. It's a lie.

Want an OS without viruses, get Haiku OS. Just be ready to barely do anything at all.

hmmm, let's see....

PoC EFI rootkit
Morcut – a.k.a Crisis
FileCoder
Sabpab
Tsunami backdoor for Mac OS X discovered
Lamadai
SX/Devilrobber (a.k.a. OSX/Miner)
Imuler
Revir
Flashback
Backdoor:OSX/Olyx.B
Blackhole RAT (darkComet, MusMinim)
OSX/Boonana
OpinionSpy
HellRTS – a.k.a. HellRaiser
Mac/Hovdy.A
Tored.AA
Mac/PokerPlay
Imunizator
And the list goes on...
these are just malware I haven't added mac viruses

The thing is, that if it can be controlled by code, it can be hacked. The Mac is not immune.

Bitter? XD

There are still 10 times more viruses for windows, you can't deny that. and it's not so much apple saying this as fans.

Come on, you know as well as I do that if it wasn't for microsoft's exclusivity agreements over the years apple would have crushed them. Lack of third party support was the only thing holding apple back.

It's the way of the world, whoever gets the most,or biggest contracts wins. it's why betamax died, it's why laser disc died, it's why hddvd died, it why the Dreamcast died. It's a miracle apple hung on this long. and that was only because they managed to get a foothold in a few industries like the movie effects industry and had a much stronger performance in other creative fields early on. (though that has fallen off in more recent years)

Raptorn, wow, I didn't know you were such a Mac Fanatic... lol. Got to remember that Gates WAS on the Apple team in the beginning. Both he and Joe made millions (I only wish I had bought shares back then...)

But each system has it's own perks and devils. I'm really surprized that there are a lot more linx guys in here crying for this. The QT environment is cross portable (from what I've read).

The Apple guys are just going to have to wait for this to come out of PC Beta, once that's done, they can scream all they want and see if Steam/Valve complies.

Well, yeah, thats where Windows came from. the infamous Lisa incident. LOL granted both ripped off Xerox. and tandy had Deskmate a year before windows came out. XD

and I wonder if this will ever come out of beta. sometimes it seems like they barely pay attention at all, then a random update will come with even more feature we have no clue about.

Add to that it seems this board has no moderators at all. I've never seen a valve person here. not to mention have no clue about anyone that has worked on this.

I'd be tempted to enter the saxxys just for the chance to meet sfm programmers. and would go with a list of questions. A long list. a REALLY long list.
