Games Despite what many (including myself) thought when EA announced they would support the Mac platform, the games EA will release are actually not native ports - instead, they will use Transgaming's Cider engine, a Wine-like wrapper for running Windows games on Intel Macs. This news was found in a Transgaming press release. Apart from the fact that this might negatively affect performance, it also means PowerPC Macs will not be able to play these games.

loki happened a long time ago as far as technology is concerned. with the presure ubuntu is having in getting the linux out its only a matter of time before users start screaming for gaming.

OSX on x86 is step one. and a baby step at that. gaming on that platform will increase. and as linux use increases peeple will want to use it for gaming. the porting houses will take notice.

like i said if the ball rolls the right way this could be the start of a huge movement, in 5-10 yrs.
