Steam for Mac was released today with free Portal until the 24th.

For some reason they decided ~/Documents was the best place to store downloaded games.

Luckily you can move and Soft Link the Steam Content folder to anywhere you want though by running the following command in the Terminal.

Code: Select all
ln -s /path/to/moved/Steam\ Content ~/Documents/Steam\ Content

Love that they are giving away Portal.

Love more that they made a large number of games work on the Mac.

Love the most that I don't have to re-purchase games that I already own on PC.

Torchlight on the go is amazing.

Best thing is they will be supporting Linux too, you can already "hack" their site to download the prerelease client :)

I wish they would give up on the Steam UI though. There is so much wasted space in the browser chrome that it actually bothers me.
