"The final item from this month is one that has been on the mind of many
players both current and future, and that is Vista compatibility. After
years of work, the team has decided that rather than continuing to attempt
to support Vista, we will be taking steps to make Istaria the first "Mac
only" MMORPG on the market. We're sure that our current customers will
agree that supporting any form of a Microsoft based operating system in the
future will prove to be a "bad thing", and that making a move to support
Apple will be a "good thing". As the market for an alternative to the
"Microsoft Monopoly" grows, we feel that it is in the best interests of all
our customers to make the change and "Go Mac" with us!"

 

That's the biggest load of BS. I, just yesterday, found this game, signed up, and was going to keep an eye on it.

You do know that today is "April Fool's" day, right? You did get the memo, right?

they are gonna go mac only - zero PC

if this is so how much of their tiny player base is currently playing this game on PC - they can afford to lose them or is everyone expected to buy apple?


 

See the above post, lol.
