[Craig Seeman] "So we should see a mass exodus of CUDA dependent software from the Mac platform since they are such an insignificant player? After all, why bother developing for such an OS. Or perhaps macOS is important enough that they'll improve support for AMD as you say Adobe is doing."

Each company is going to decide what's a better use of their time and resources (developing for Metal because Apple gives them no choice or dropping Mac support so they can keep focus with Nvidia), but if it looks like Apple will block Nvidia indefinitely I wouldn't be surprised to see companies dropping MacOS (or just maintaining a token presence while shifting primary focus to Windows). Apple is already a bit player in many/most computing areas (hence the 7% marketshare) so it's not like they are indispensable (generally speaking).

Weird how Apple drops support for the two most widely used GPU APIs in order to force people to adopt their Mac-only, proprietary API yet some how everyone else is the problem.
