    so i just downloaded steam on my macbook pro and im trying to install counter strike :source i already purchased it years ago and want to play. i loaded up steam and this is the menu

    http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/7414/screenshot20100703at125.png

    how do i get to my games menu and install css? when i hit the counterstrike button it ask me if i want to purchase it as a gift, so it recognizes that i own it but i cant get to the menu to install it.

    all help appreciated thanks

    I for one would like to congratulate the OP for admitting he's gay.

    Also, the new Steam is a relative pain in the ass compared to the old one. Am not surprised you cant find your stuff, its not as beginner-friendly as the old Steam.
    Also, if that thing minimizes to an icon on your task bar or status bar or whatever the hell you people call it, you should be able to right click on that little icon and run your last 5 games from it.

    This is why Mac users are too fucking stupid to play games.

    This thread just made my day. Thank you theplaidfad.


    But in all honesty, I wonder what that "Library" thing could be. I don't want to check out any books, wtf was Steam thinking?

    A frickin pocket caluculator is a PC, if you use the broad definition.

    Welcome back fromthe cave you have been in, but there's another - and dominant - meaning for "PC", which is not a Mac, but a Windows-running PC.

    See all the marketing - Apple's own ads have a guy say he's a mac, and another guy say he's a PC. I think there were Microsoft ads as well referring to PC = computer running Windows.

    'PC' ad Windows, versus Mac, is a very common use of the term, and it's clear to normal people what PC means as a Windows-running computer.

    Pulling out an obsolete, archaic, nearly unused alternate definition is not helpful.

    PC = Personal Computer
    A mac is a PC.
    You sir need to figure that out.

    Yes, there is no dominant definition of "PC" besides your obsolete, secondary one.

    So when *APPLE* put out ads:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Get_a_Mac

    With 'I'm a Mac' and 'I'm a PC' as the two chars, their point was both chars saying 'I'm a personal computer'.

    So you're saying Apple dictates definitions now?
