Mac users don't typically expect ports of games to actually be as good or better than the Windows version. If they do, they clearly have not been a mac user long enough!It is not surprising in the least that a bootcamped install of SC2 will play better than the OS X native client. This is the nature of the development of so many game developers to gravitate towards Windows optimizations and native Windows technologies that typically OS X optimizations are done after the fact. I still commend Blizzard for making sure that SC2/Diablo/WoW all have native mac clients at launch, but I know that the mac clients are not usually as fast as their Windows brethren. Even Steam has many optimizations yet to be done to their now-fantastic multiplatform gaming service. Many mac users are excited for the chance to play these previously-impossible to experience games without the use of Windows.But for any Windows user to bash mac users for using their platform of choice merely reeks of fanboyism and knee-jerk baseless one-upmanship, and TBH you lose of lot of credibility in my eyes. You are too uninformed to make such loose exaggerations and hyperbole to the point that I quickly stop reading, much like many of the senseless "FIRST" posts that we typically associate with nubs. GG and all that jazz, you're still a nub. Recognize that perhaps you don't really understand the situation as clearly as you think you do, then perhaps take a breath and post something that merits reading. Until then, take my advice and stop being a idiot.Thanks, and I hope that Basil learns his lesson about starting a PC vs. Mac war. :)
