So if any of the games you already have for PC that are supported on MAC, will still be yours on MAC? It doesn't have to be a purchase from today and on?

So far there are 63 titles for Mac all together (IIRC). And if you bought any of them for your PC earlier, you can download the Mac version through Steam at no charge. Hard to say if all Steam Mac games will work this way, as it is ultimately up to the publisher I imagine, but so far so good! I have Torchlight and Portal available on both platforms atm. I think Valve's catalogue will likely be all ported over. Curious to see what else?

Correct. Cross-platform games will be available to you for both PC and Mac.

Cool! I'm downloading it now.
On a sidenote, has anyone using Teksavvy in East york notice a speed increase lately? Since I switched from rogers, my dl speed would be about 3.6-4.2 mb/s. I'm currently downloading portal at just over 6mb/s. odd...
