    Default Steam for Mac Will Be Release on May 12th
    According to Kotaku, Valve stated that Steam for Mac will be released on May 12th. Most Valve-developed games, such as Half-Life series, Team Fortress 2, Portal, Left 4 Dead series, and Counter-Strike (likely Source) will be brought to Mac OS X.

    Also, Mangr0v3 on the Steam Forums, stated what they think what will be on the Mac version:

    -It will require Mac OS X 10.5 or higher.
    -Source games for Mac will require Mac OS X 10.5.8 or higher (Leopard), or 10.6.3 or higher (Snow Leopard).
    -It will be Intel only, PowerPC will not be supported.
    -Source games will not run are not supported on the X3100 or 900-series Intel chipsets.
    -An anonymous source in the Beta program told me that while the X3100 and 900-series GMAs are not officially supported, you can still run Mac Portal, and get 10-15 FPS on lowest settings on the X3100.
    -Steam Play mean that you do not need to purchase separate Windows and Mac versions of the same game. Implementation will probably depend on the publisher.
    -The Steam Overlay will require "Enable access for assistive devices" checked in System Preferences -> Universal Access
    -(Some?) games will require the Windows Media Components for Quicktime
    -Mac games will get their own category automatically.
    -The Steam Store may sell Mac-exclusive games.
    -Steam and Source will run natively, not through Wine/Cider/Crossover/etc.
    -Source will run on OpenGL.
    -Mac OS X will be treated "as a tier-1 platform".
    -Mac OS X and Windows users will play on the same servers, join the same lobbies, etc.
    -The first Steam client for Mac OS X will be the same as the Steam version to be released on April 26th.
