I'm beginning to wonder whether I'm making a mistake by ignoring the Mac market. I use my own library to create games for the PC using DirectX.
For those that are developing on multiple platforms, what are you using?
Is the Mac market worth it?

More than 50% of my sales come from the mac side. In the past people have said that the mac port accounts for between 30-60% of sales. That being said I have a macintosh and know where to go to get publicity.
I use java so the mac side comes naturally.

Though I personally haven't released a Mac port yet (don't have a Mac to work with), I write code with portability in mind. My weapon of choice is SDL (http://www.libsdl.org), but there's also princec's LJWLSDF or however you spell it for Java, :) and PTK by patrox if you use C. My beef with both of them is that they use OpenGL, which can be fatal for certain target audiences.

Mac sales are slightly greater than Windows for Marble Blast. It uses Torque so the port is fairly easy.
