    Valve’s digital delivery service Steam is now available for the Mac. To celebrate the launch, gamers on both platforms get an unexpected gift: a free copy of Portal.

    Through May 24, Valve is giving away PC and Mac copies of its critically acclaimed puzzle game.

I've got it downloading for my PC right now. If you want in on the free game action, just head on over.

Wow, this is very unfriendly to Macs....Steam is trying to dump everything into my Documents folder. I had to go into Terminal and create a symbolic link for "Steam Content" onto my external HD because no way do I have a spare 5G on my internal one:

(search users, here are those commands)
# cd ~/Documents
# ln -s /Volumes//Steam\ Content Steam\ Content

It's pretty annoying the developers didn't make it more easily configurable where Steam saves its data - at the VERY least, let me choose a different disk! COME ON

(Maybe some day I'll actually have time to play Portal and tell you what I think of IT! )

I don't really get your post. It seems, well pointless. Are you angry that new graphics cards are always expensive or that the gamemakers decided to use the newest technology available?
