What an offensive reply, I hope this isn't typical of posters on this forum, hardly welcomes one to the community :-(
FYI I'm a project manager in my forties and bought (with my own salary) my Macbook Air mainly for work, as I have to travel alot (its light and has excellent battery life) and I much prefer the Mac OS X interface. I do like space 4x games (e.g. Masters of Orion II, Sins of a Solar Empire) and other strategy games, e.g. (Europa Universalis III, For the Glory, Crusader Kings II, Civ V), however, and most of these *do* run absolutely fine in Windows 7 via Bootcamp on my Macbook Air (its not like I'm trying to play fast FPS games), but as Distant Worlds does not have a demo *and* is very expensive if buying all expansions too (which sounds essential for the best playing experience), I thought I should check here first.
If this response is typical of the DW user community (I've never had a response like this on Paradox forums), though, I don't know that I will bother buying it, unless others here seem more helpful and less rude.
