I think this underscores the commitment that Apple made to Game Developers at WWDC, getting more documentation and suport for GLUT could get more apps ported/developed on the Mac. And that’s a good thing. A day will come when I impulse purchase that $5 closeout first-person shooter at MicroCenter because it runs on Mac & PC!

So for those who like spelunking start with:

And yes, there will be a Windows version too. Check the strings…
