I’ve been running the Mac and Windows version of Garrys Mod Recently, and heres what I have to say about the versions.
Both had same addons installed, (mainly PHX, Wire etc), and both were the latest version and legally off steam.
Pros of the Mac Version
Doesn’t crash as much,
No annoying DLLs
Seemed more stable
Cons of the Mac Version
Addons didn’t work as well as they did on the Windows counterpart, some didn’t work at all.
Some people on game-servers don’t realize that what OS you use is a choice
Pros of the Windows Version
Pretty much every addon works
Cons of the Windows Version
DLLs are frankly a pain
It crashed a lot of when joining servers and loading maps,
Compared to the Mac version, it appears to use more memory.
Random post, but felt like posting it.
