    Wow. Some of my friends will be happy.

    I wonder if it has anything to do with last nights weirdo update.

    Prepare for an influx of noobs. And M1 pyros. Do macs have a right click now?

    Macs have always had right click. Just not on their mice for god knows why. The OS had right click if you got a right-clicking mouse though.

    And I'm assuming I'm that girl, so yay! Mac steam!

    Macs don't deserve steam.

    I'm guessing this will NOT include all the Source SDK stuff?

    :facepalm: The VERY first time Valve spoke about it they specifically said Mac users will be able to make content for the games like all their PC friends.

    I know, and that does not equate to having it available immediately on launch. They enumerated several applications which would be available, and "Source SDK" wasn't among them.

    They are porting the entire Steam engine to mac, so there would be no reason for them not to make Source SDK too

    Sums up macs. Why have one button when everyone else has 3 minimum?

    You mean the Source engine? I'm not sure how much overlap there is between the two such that Hammer etc. is a small marginal cost.

    The only use I see in Macs is Final Cut Pro. Everything else I can't stand. :I

    They DON'T have only one button. I don't know how many people I've had to explain this too but macs have had right click since the 90's. Their mice look like only one button, but in reality they have about 5. And it has full any-direction scroll, which is more than a lot of windows mice.
    As for the laptops, yes, the entire trackpad is one button. But you can map whatever button you want to wherever you want on that trackpad. I bet you can't do that on 90% of windows laptops.

    I read the title wrong and thought that other people were preparing to cream my pants. Then I read it again. I cannot unthink.

    Still can't click left and right buttons at once with the default mouse. But we've been over that already and I did mention you can map secondary fire to squeeze. And that I hope they map building/disguise selection to horizontal scroll (or someone comes up with a script for it).

    Yeah, I meant the Source engine. Stupid brainfarts.
