Following ArenaNet's short notice that they are dropping the game's Mac client, I'm looking for a solution for my wife to be able to continue playing the game on her Intel-chip Mac. I have some experience with Windows-Linux dual booting, but I know close to nothing about Mac computers. I get a sense that Mac-Linux dual boot is popular, at least among developers.
I'm not looking to be spoon-fed instructions, I can search the web and learn about Mac, but I would appreciate the opinion of people who already tried this configuration to play the game and can tell if the performance makes it worth the effort. I know there is a Linux thread here which is immensely long and I don't know if it mentions Mac computers.
Thank you in advance.
PS: Not looking to use Bootcamp and pay for a Windows license just for one game.
