    Now, many people on this forum seems to be playing games on their Mac.
    And Mac, being that it doesn't have as big of a userbase, suffered from lack of support from major game developers.

    Apparently, Valve is preparing towards the release of their game distribution service "Steam" (Which many of you guys probably already know) and alongside it, their flagship games such as Half Life 2, Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead (2), and Portal.

    No one knows for sure, but looking at the leaked promotional posters, it doesn't seem like someone would have been wasting time just to make up all those pictures.

    They'll probably port the source games. Windows will still reign, though.

    They officially announced it.

    Steam and Valve's library of games including Left 4 Dead 2, Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike, Portal, and the Half-Life series will be available in April.
