So after lots of rumors and speculation, Valve has released a Steam client for Mac OS X. Is this going to change the pros and cons in the future when determining what OS platform to select? Perhaps, especially since the vibe online is that there is a Linux client destined to be released sometime at the end of summer according to Phoronix.
I went ahead and downloaded the dmg file and installed Portal which they are offering for free right now. BONUS!. I actually have played it and so far loving where this is going. After downloading and copying over the application I went ahead and logged in to see my Macbook Pro connect natively for the first time.
