you could multiboot if you can be bothered to mess around with bootcamp...
i'd guess OSX is openGL based.

which mac do you have aswell - i think the older ones are ATI based
(white?), newer ones (alu?) i believe are nvidia based.

im not a mac fan at all, so i dont own one, but i do have the misfortune to
use them at work now and again :P
