There are not enough Mac users out there to make it worth Bethesda's time, money, and resources to write the game for Mac. Bethesda is a business so why should they invest money in something they will not show a profit on?

Marketing. Adapting/rewriting their games to Mac would use more money than what will be earned. As simple as that. If you are interested in gaming Mac was not a good purchase.

Funny how early on Apple had the quintessential gaming machines. Of course the same could be said for Atari. The company that all but invented the console, can no longer make a decent console.

I do not understand why you invested so heavily in a mac when PC is a no brainer...

Forgive the initial scentence, but I am sure it is on everyone's mind when reading this...Was a Mac the only thing available for you when you 'lost' your PC? I just don't know why people are using Macintosh's.

Ok, I won't say they are crap or anything...just have this prejudice I guess, through lack of knowledge about what exactly they are useful for...any facts?

Back in the day they were the preferred platform for graphics design, and digital photography. And a lot more reliable and stable than windows computers

If you can afford a mac, you can afford a windows license.

Microsoft is such a "nice" company that they allow you to install Windows on a Mac computer [via bootcamp]. Unfortunately, can't say the same thing about Apple.

First computer I messed with was an Apple IIe. I had a boatload of games on 5' floppy disks. Everything from Karateka, to Taipan, to Pool of Radiance.
(yes, I'm dating myself. I'm an old fart. ;)
But it's true, Apple got so caught up in proprietary crap; and failed to liscence out their products, that their market share plummeted, and PCs took over. There's an old rumor, I don't know if it's true or not, that Bill Gates actually reverse-engineered apple's OS to create Windows 3.0.

Its not true. Gate's first big hit (MS-DOS) was bought, and rebuilt from another developer. Both Apple and MS took the idea of the GUI from a Xerox project that Xerox failed to capitalize on.

Apple's main problem is they became a *computer* company while MS became an *OS* company - MS didn't care what you ran their stuff on and accomodated third party vendors - a hug reason why Windows is and will remain less stable than a Mac. Mac's are great for people who 'just want it to work' and have no interest in what's happening under the hood - there's a price for that.

Windows got into its dominant position, despite its instabilities and the work needed things running smoothly under a bajillion hardware configurations, because they only sold an OS. Apple loses out because even though they have a lot of good tech (and pretty often lead the community in innovation - Firewire for example), you *have* to buy their hardware and its damn near impossible to buy it piecemeal from multiple vendors when you're bargain-hunting.

Overall, I'd say Apple computers are *better* than PC's (in general) but I'll never get one because of the ridiculous level of control the company wants to maintain over what you do with it.
