Yes, it's not a technical post but I thought it appropriate to post a BIG thanks to Turbine for the efforts in bringing us an official Mac client.
Looking forward to working on improving the beta client and many happy hours of LOTRO on the Mac
To join the fun the download is here;

Turbine Support - How do I download and install LOTRO onto my computer?
This is the MAC Client ONLY. It is a big, and I do mean big, download. It is a direct download, no Pando, no happy cloud, etc. It's going to take a significant amount of time to DL it all. If I recall correctly it's 16GB give or take.
We're still sorting some issues with the MAC client so please report bugs you see using the bug reports. You'll also find we've opened a new forum for MAC Technical Support.
edit: Currently I'm only getting around 50kB/sec download speed so it will takes days as it is. Maybe that is just a local thing (normally I download max at about 256kB/sec) or just the load on the available bandwidth on the host server.
