I think my jaw just hit the core of the earth.

And since they swapped out Trident for Webkit...

Hopefully they will make it so that people with macs wont be able to buy windows games so they don't get ripped off buying something they can't play.

Yes, but that doesn't mean all games will work on your Mac.
Probably will only be the few ones that run on both.

Naw, it's Valve's intent to create their own OS. Operating System X-ray, based on Steamworks.

I have a feeling Source is being ported to OS X and Linux. Postal 3 will apparently run on the Source engine, and will also run on Windows, Linux and OS X.

Nah, what if I want to buy Crysis from a hotspot? I would rather a massive warning: "Please note: You will NOT be able to play this game on this computer, or any other computers that do not meet the requirements."

He's not supposed to be able to. My guess is someone forgot to set a setting somewhere.

I've heard, that Valve hired some Linux and Mac - people to work with Linux / Mac - versions of their games + steam.

Well, I don't think they'll be adding support for Windows games on the Mac. My opinion is that they'll add the GUI compatibility on the Mac along with a Mac Games store.

There is also an osx.menu file in the C:\~\Steam\Resource\Menus, which contains definitions for standard OSX menus.
