There are many places, but I'm sure you've been heard already.
Thanks for your kind words.

Unfortunately, Mac OS games just don't run on anything but Mac OS
itself. Many Linux games and some windows ones run flawlessly on
FreeBSD, though, with no or subtle performance penalties.
On the other hand, you might have heard that Mac OS X is based on
FreeBSD. They removed all the clear things you were talking about,
slipstreamed a clear-looking GUI and put a price tag on it. The result
is a pretty good desktop OS (for a commercial one that is). You might
want to try it out.
