Video says "....without having to invest in a full set of Mac computers".

Soooo... does that mean you still need ONE Mac?  Or you can build for Mac on Windows PC and test via some sort of emulation?

No develop on Windows, but it would be a good idea to have at least one mac to test on a real machine.  Well that's my take on it.

Whatever happens, I hope there is no backlash on us, the consumers.

The latest news is that now Microsoft have made comments in support of Epic. This must have had something to do with Apple denying Microsoft xCloud streaming and subscription services.

Not really, more like Apple 1 - Epic 0.5   ;D

However, she also wrote that Apple had "chosen to act severely" by threatening to block the Unreal Engine, which is widely used by others.

Epic signed a deal so they were always going to lose that one, there again Amazon seem to have a 'special deal' with Apple, so why not the same deal for everybody?  Threatening to kill the Unreal Engine was spiteful.

As someone who's used Unreal engine as a free resource, I think it's pretty cruel to take that away from people. I'm leaning towards Epic here.

Apparently a judge has ruled that Apple cannot deny Epic access to their developer account or any technology that third-parties rely on.

That judge deserves an MBE, if he is in the U of K..

Apple can deny whoever it wants from its store in exactly the same way a business can refuse to serve a customer if it chooses.   Epic is no more than a wealthy customer really.

If the store sells essential stuff for a living this right is shallowed (at least in Germany).

And so it could be be for almost monopolies.
