Do you support a Mac OS X client for SWTOR?

This thread is for discussing support for an OS X client for Star Wars The Old Republic. Please keep comments related to that topic.

This is not a Bootcamp thread.

This is not a Mac Vs. PC thread.

The Empire is not evil, and the Republic is not good...it is all a matter of opinion.

Not sure there is enough demand. Plus they would have to re-write the game engine in OpenGL which isn't likely to happen for a long time.

No, you can bootcamp and retain 95% of your computer's performance. Or you can just be like a rational person, and not buy an Apple computer to game on.

I don't support it or not support it.

But, Macs actually running a Mac OS only make up about 5% of the market, so I wouldn't hold your breath.

No, it's a waste of development time that could be better spent elsewhere.

True and not true. My 27" iMac handles games quite well in BootCamp.

Untrue, Mac users are growing. Also Mac's are not bad for gaming as the hardware in them is usually fairly good for the video editting and 3d rendering software that is used on them.
