As many of you have likely heard, Apple's new MacBook notebooks launched last week and are using NVIDIA graphics instead of the Intel integrated graphics they had been using. With NVIDIA GPUs now appearing on more Apple products with Mac OS X, this graphics company is now encouraging game developers to bring their titles to Mac OS X. At NVIDIA's launch of their new GeForce 9 motherboard IGPs, they had shared their plans to encourage more game developers to release their games for Mac OS X and to bring their release dates closer to when they ship the title for Windows.

NVIDIA is pushing this Mac support through their The Way It's Meant To Be Played program. Our friends at Bit-Tech have more information from the launch and we're working to get additional details right now. However, when will NVIDIA begin pushing game developers to support Linux? Once games are running on Mac OS X, it's only one more small step to bring the OpenGL game to Linux. If we get any information from NVIDIA, we'll pass it along.
