    OS X, Mac, and 3D gaming 2001 and after

    Well, Omnigroup has ported Q3 without too much trouble (read: any) to Cocoa. Thus, it shouldn't be too hard, given the ease of Omnigroup's port to port new games within a weekend or two and thus give the Mac a very easy way to get games on the market at the same time as PC games.
