Valve working on a Mac-friendly Steam client?

By on
Valve's digital distribution platform Steam may be on its way to Mac OS X if this next bit of news has any substance. Superannuation found a curious block of text on the LinkedIn page of Valve's Chris Green: "I work for Valve. You should work for Valve. REALLY looking for senior Linux + Mac engineers. Always hiring Senior Engineers, Artists, and Mappers."

That's not particularly revealing, but it makes a bit of sense for Valve to introduce a Mac version of Steam. Various titles that the service offers are already Mac-friendly, such as PopCap's casual games, and Apple's userbase seems to be increasing -- especially among younger crowds, who happen to like video games.

Are there enough Mac-compatible games on Steam to make it worth Valve's while? Would you install the Steam client on your Mac?
