So what should we expect from the new Mac / Linux EVE

graphics quality... same performance... the same beautiful environments
as they're being upgraded. The only thing we're doing is on the Mac
specifically- over time we're going to be adding Mac-specific custom
features. So essentially what we're going to be doing is to give Mac
users the same user friendly enviroment they've become accustomed to...
A great example of that is multiple windows. In fact, in Leopard you
can actually be running 4 sessions of EVE simulataneously."
