Valve put some OSX in Steam's files

With all the games that Windows it's no wonder the platform has a billion digital download services like Steam. But there's a chance that very same service might hit OSX -- and as a Mac user, I'm stressing chance despite the call from Valve for a few Macintosh and Linux engineers.

Here's the deal: a file dumpster diver on the Steam message board has discovered multiple small OSX branded files inside of Steam's code. The list of stuff includes buttons and even dock icons, which is enough to make us scratch our heads -- it's not like a ton of games that Steam carries have Macintosh ports. Regardless, we're thrilled by prospect. It would be nice to have a service on the level of Steam, even if it's just a tease.
