    By the Nine Divines, we've got an imbecile on the loose. If you paid attention to the series lore, criminal scum, you would knot that Skyrim is the northernmost province of Tamriel, north of Cyrodiil, east of High Rock and west of Morrowind. The main inhabitants are the Nords, but ruins from when the land was in the hands of the Aldmer remain. Major cities include Winterhold, a major center of learning, and Solitude, famous for it's role as the fortress of the Wolf Queen, Potema.

    Also, this is the same game series that thought "Elsweyr" was a good name for a province. You get used to it.

    Uh, gamers don't use Macs. At all. Not because of the hardware (although even the most pimped out Mac pales before a fully-loaded custom rig), but because of the software. The drivers on OS X are terrible - significantly slower, and with many missing features. It's not a good gaming system - for people that will meticulously adjust timings on RAM to improve performance, a 20% performance cut to switch to Mac is just not logical.

    And, unlike you, I will back this up with citations. The current survey (of gaming rigs running Steam) is:
    • 45.50% Windows 7
    • 26.29% Windows XP
    • 23.05% Windows Vista
    • 4.71% Mac OS X
    • 0.31% Windows 2003
    • 0.11% other, including everyone using Wine

    That's a terrible percentage. Every version of Mac OS is being beaten by Vista alone in a landslide. There's honestly no need for them to release a Mac version. And, actually, Sony at least does allow keyboards/mice to be used in games. However, very few games are programmed to actually use them.
