Jeff has always made his games for Mac first by programming them on a Mac. If he were mostly a Windows user he'd probably make them for Windows first.

—Alorael, who wouldn't feel too left out. His games always reach WIndows eventually.

Why windows, or why Linux. He does what he does, he's comfortable with his workflow. Besides it tickles me to see the Mac get a game first, and I have to assume he does it just to tickle me.

You've spelled it twice and misspelled it differently each time. Come on; it's not even as tricky a word as Vanihattati.

Oh, come on. That's not even one of his misspellings!

—Alorael, who sees enough butcheries of "vahnatai" already. Is it really necessary to perpetuate the trend by doing it yourself? No. It's not.

I for one am personally psyched beyond belief by Jeff's policy of releasing for Mac first. It's one of very few companies that do it.

Actually, yes it is. It's in the title.

The word is vahnatai, and they're a race from the Avernum series. From your name I take it you've played mostly Geneforge and never run into them.

—Alorael, who apologizes for ignoring the topic title. Okay, that's 3/3.

You're acting like you've never seen the A4 crowd. Seriously.

The funny thing is that it doesn't matter which is released first. The amount of time between releases will be the same since Jeff always ports his product. Would that other developers had his integrity, this wouldn't be an issue.

The new people tend to overuse smileys and punctuation. And spelling, usually.

Based on conclusions from another topic, more than a few Geneforge players are young children. That might explain the lack of grammar in such discussion boards.

Also they might just be used to not using correct grammer. I wish they would though.

Spelling is part of grammar, though! The parts of grammar that aren't spelling are syntax.
