Valve have posted a heavily encrypted announcement on their official website.
Big things are happening RIGHT NOW at Valve. Things involving cultivated tree-fruit. BIG things. Things that rhyme with "grapple." Things that rhyme with "Speem Gortress zmavailable on the Babac."

Not today. But tomorrow. BIG THINGS. Stay tuned...
Using our crack team of cryptographers and in conjunction with the NSA, we figured out that this probably means Team Fortress 2 will be winging its way to the Mac tomorrow. Apple fans, you may begin to commence starting to rejoice.

"Q: Hmm, that all sounds pretty good. But I'll bet I can't play with my friends who own Macs if I'm on my PC.
A: Mac and PC users will all play together, on the same servers. We're not creating two separate universes. We're all going to be one big, happy family with guns locked in a bloody, never-ending struggle for cap points"

I've always wondered if by mac they mean OS X only or can you somehow jig it up to play on linux system like ubuntu.

great to see mac getting some gaming attention here.. but how would you play with only one mouse button, or do they have 2 now?

They need to do an "I'm a Mac/I'm a PC"-type video featuring TF2 characters to pimp this I reckon.

They kinda already did a teaser pic with a level 1 turret as PC and a Portal turret as a Mac.

Oh, and Macs have had two-button mices since 2005, but have supported them years before that.

Thats awesome ! It'll be interesting to see the TF2 server stats over the next month or so and see if the usage increases by 5%

I hope they have an identifier for who is using PC and who is using Mac, then we can have mac vs pc matchups :D

This would be a good time to bring out a new achievement for a PC vs Mac thing. I hope the do something like this.

I've been out of TF2 for too long, I've got no hats, achievements or anything. My TF2 is pretty much in the same condition it was when I downloaded it. Stupid lack of achievements making it look like I suck (when I just don't play it). :(
