Honestly enough... if it is easy enough to just have it run windows on the machine natively, it should be equally easy to program ports that work on windows AND mac. The only problem is that it wont, in that case, work on PowerPC macs, only universal. Thats the only thing that is really the issue. If Publishers decided to go to Universal ONLY, it would be easy to have OSX and Win versions of everything. Just it would completely alienate a good portion of the Mac Users that haven't upgraded yet. (Like me.)
