    There is a lot of information for new switchers in the stickies that might be beneficial for you to read. If you have a copy of Windows, you can install Windows on your Mac using Bootcamp. You can also run Windows side-by-side with OSx using Parallels, VMWare, etc.

    If you do this, you can install your Windows software on the Windows side.

    Hope this helps. There's a lot of information already on this forum that has helped me a lot.

    Another note: if you purchased the games from Steam, then you should not need to re-purchase any Steam games available for Mac. Not many are at present, but that number will grow quickly (we are told).
