Valve's content delivery service Steam could soon be making its way to Apple's Mac platform “graphics and files specifically referencing Mac OS X have been discovered in the current PC version. A file known as C:\Program Files\Steam\resource\menus\osx.menu contains definitions for OS X menus, as well as a form of platform checking in the file Steam\Public\steamui_english.txt with the line: "steam_welcomeaction_platformwrong" "%gamename% is not available on your current platform."” Also, Valve's Chris Green posted on his Linkedin profile that Valve are interested in Mac and Linux engineers. Historically Valve have given very little support to the Mac, but the debut of Steam on the Webkit platform could signal a change of attitude.
