There have been a couple threads on this so far, such as this one.
Overall these threads degenerate into the following points:
1) Shuddup Mac user, use boot camp.
2) Not economically viable to port to a platform with only 57 users (ie, no-one uses macs)
3) Windows is sooo much better than macs, buy a PS3 or a real computer
Personally, I think it's a fabulous idea, and anyone who uses any of the above replies doesn't know what they're talking about. Booting to boot camp is a last resort thing; it's a P.I.T.A. to require a reboot (plus a Ca$130 Windows licence and install) just to play a game. There are far more Macs out there than you think- if WoW and WAR both think it's worth porting, why not FFXIV?
Even SE thinks it's more than doable:

Would you consider releasing your next MMO for operating systems besides Windows?
Nothing is set in stone, but we are shooting for PS3, Xbox 360 and Windows. This is not to say that there will not be a Linux or Mac OS version. Creating versions for those platforms would be a little harder, but it's not out of the question.

I have to admit, I really don't understand the anger the idea of a Mac client seems to generate in some people. Why can't we have a native client so we can access the game in our OS of choice? There are a lot more of us than you think, especially in recent years...
