They all change certain things, which can be undone easily. If your mouse is acting weird while playing a game, like Call of Duty: World at War did for me, try changing the setting to "Override", and select "Rootless" or "Fullscreen". You'll have to use the keyboard shortcut Command-Q to exit the fullscreen virtual desktop, though.
And that's it! Have fun, and reply to this post if you have comments or concerns. Last edited by Ginger ; 18 Feb, pm.

I looked into this playonmac thing but I dont know how to use it. You might be able to copy the steamapps folder from Windows to Mac, but I don't have experience doing that cross-OS. It does work reasonably well from Windows to Windows, though. At the very least, it might let you just "validate integrity of game cache" instead of re-downloading from scratch.
So if you bought a game for PC you can run it in any of the game's supported operating systems, be it Windows, Linux or OS X which are the only ones who can currently run the Steam client. They should appear as cute little icons in the right sidebar of the game's store page both in the web browser and the Steam client.

Although like Kevin said you will loose a lot of games due to cross OS issues. You don't lose any games. You can't run many of them in Steam on Mac natively, but you still own the games that you've purchased. Also, the last time that I checked a year or more ago, admittedly , you could run Steam in Wine or a Wine-wrapper such as CrossOver and play Windows-only games from there. There is at least one exception where you do have to purchase the Mac version separately filthy, disgusting, putrid, greedy CoD franchise but this is very rare.
If anyone knows of any others, please comment. Not all games have been ported to Mac. Clearly, the term PC was used here to differentiate between PC hardware and console hardware. The idea that the poster meant any specific operating system is at odds with the sentence, the paragraph, the post, and the thread. FuriousFolder: I think you failed to read the post prior to the edit. There are exceptions to this. Yorik I did in fact read the unedited version.
How to Reinstall Steam Games on Mac, Windows, Linux
My point stands. Unless it's been stripped from the revision history, I'm confused why you brought up consoles. You'll see either of these logos on games with SteamPlay: Windows and Mac support Windows, Mac and Linux support Sometimes a game publisher might release a SteamPlay version of a game separately from the original, Windows only version.
