That depends? Do you live in bootcamp? Or do you just reboot to play games? If you spend a lot of time on your Mac install, I'd suggest trying the Mac client out. It'll mean fewer reboots for you.

Use the Winepatches from the iLoL Team, they've done a great work. I'm also using Linux, but Wine isn't the solution and I hope someday there will be a native Linux client.. In the meantime I prefer to work with Linux and play with Windows

Just think. You'll have the opportunity to help train them and make them better. And make new friends in the process.

I don't really understand the assumption that the players coming from the macs will automatically be bad. There are a lot of bad players even on Windows. I don't see how an OS represents skill.
