Because mac users don''t have the mental capacity to handle using both a keyboard and mouse at the same time for FPS style games.

On the contrary, many Mac users can handle using the mouse and the keyboard at the same time, but thats only because their mouse only has one OVERSIZED button for them to worry about pushing.

I hope a moderator locks or deletes this thread promptly. It was a kind gesture, Ravuya (though I''ve never so much as used a Mac myself); pity about all the snerts flaming you (and Mac users in general).

Jeez, you people are really fucking biased. Macintoshes are great computers. They run much smoother than any Windows that I''ve used. MacOS X is also much more appealing than Windows 3.1-XP. Their processors are RISC processors, as opposed to a CISC processor that most x86 processors are. The professional field for software development on Macintoshes has boomed over the past year since the release of OS X. Many people have and will be switching. Myself included. I''d rather have something that works than something that doesn''t.

You crashed a Mac....congratulations...it''s possible to do if you try. And Objective C? Why bother? Mac''s can compile C or C++ because they use gcc.
