Publishing and porting rights are two completely different things. And I don't agree with your point of view, at all. We need companies like Aspyr to stay in the (porting) game. I have a Mac so I can use it as such, instead of it being a Windblows machine in disguise. If there is or will be a Mac version of a game I will buy it, even if I have to wait a little while longer.
Heck, if you don't want to support the porting of games that's your choice, but how do you expect it to get any better if people like you just say it's not worth it?
I think companies like Aspyr and other mac gaming powerhouses will create more original content fro the Mac instead of porting PC games. With most major PC games (even console games) using HAVOK and other such middleware, I see games more games created with the Mac in mind, instead of ports of existing games.
I not anti mac gaming as there have been some great games I've played on the Mac that have never been on the PC. I'm not a big fan of the "porting" instead of creation of original content for the Mac.
