Thanks! I have been thinking of Eve Online for some time, and after
reading this - and finding out that it does run an  Mac, I will

I have also tried Entropia Universe but find it a bit dull compared to
WoW that is much more interesting. Watch for the next upgrade due this
year though, at least the visuals should become much better.
