True, but Corporate Mundo is only an MBA.

Honestly, I wouldn't put it past the mega smart Linux community to port it over themselves XD There were some issues with WINE and League, but I bet having an OSX version will fix a bunch of them.

MACs... Are not a gaming computer. Hence, why no one makes a MAC client right off the bat.

I really suggest keeping the MAC heads away from this game. A beta MAC client is probably gonna be buggier then the current PC client. Which already crashes on a daily basis.

Throwing out a MAC client would mean HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS more games filled with AFKers and people that Lag out.

And really. No one wants that.

Oohh.... all this technical talk gets my heart racing.

I would love to know more about how the client works but I understand that I'm not an employee and not privy to that sort of thing.....yet.

So.. umm... what if I don't have Snow Leopard? My computer isn't that old, but I can't even download the patcher without updating my system :/

That depends on how many people test it on PBE, and what the feedback is.
