You know this isn't far off base. I and my wife both play WoW on Macs. But the real interesting thing to me is that I think people vastly underestimate the number of players on Macs.We've been playing since beta, and in -every- group where OS platform has been mentioned there's been at least one other player on a Mac. In all our guilds I'd say probably %30 of the people have been Mac users. This was surprisingly true of the largest guild we were ever in (> 200 people, well over 500 characters) and the smallest ones we've been in. (The largest guild we were in also had multiple people switch to MacBook Pro's while we were in it as their main machines).Now I'm sure on a worldwide basis the number of Mac players isn't as high, but the sheer number of other Mac users we've run in to in the game makes me think that the platform is bringing in a lot more money than Blizzard would admit to. And none of the Mac players have a MMO to switch to. The other modern MMO's that are out on the Mac are all running under Cider afaik, and honestly that means they're not nearly as playable on my older Mac as WoW is.
