I bought a Macbook for the battery life, but a number of my apps (incl games) needed Windows, so off to bootcamp land and 20% less battery life. Well, now that games are actually, SERIOUSLY, coming to Mac, I have more reason to just stay on the Mac side.

The other benefit to this is huge. If more and more games use OpenGL, then Windows, Mac, Linux... it doesn't matter... games with be OS independent. And it would make porting games back and forth between mobile and console platforms much easier. The future of computer gaming looks brighter now, thanks to Valve.
