According to Dan Stahl, we should have a Mac client by the end of the year.

I will never show my support for Mac in a million years lol WINE is perfect for running STO and much better than bootcamp. I use ubunto and the game has run vastly better than it has on Windows . So providing Mac support is really not necessary and they shouldn't waste anytime on that at all.

Looking forward to this. I currently use Parallels to run windows and it is VERY slow.

I cobbled together a "gaming rig" out of an old junker PC from eBay and a decent GPU. That was my solution to no Mac client since it ran poorly on my Mac Mini, and I can't boot camp my laptop due to drive encryption (required by my job). The PC sits next to my coffee table, takes up too much space, and is in the way. If a true Mac version came out, I'd probably buy a nice MacBook Pro to play the game on, and when not using it I could easily close it and tuck it away. Until then my laptop and PC attempt to cohabitate on the table, leaving little room for anything else.

Lord I really hope they finally do support Mac....I've got a B.A. Mac Mini - that I do everything but STO on. I'm using a "behind the times" laptop cobbled together with some other stuff - so if Mac support does happen I can finally dump Windows for good....

EHh, .. I use wine and it cashes constantly. Other than that wine is OK.
