You guys (I mean that in a gender-neutral way) are thinking of one of two things:
1) MacDX, which you can read about <a href="http://www.insidemacgames.com/news/story.php?ArticleID=5250
2) Dynamite, which you can read about <a href="http://www.insidemacgames.com/news/story.php?ArticleID=5461
Neither is about "porting DirectX" to the Mac. The first, MacDX, is simply a "wrapper" around the DirectX calls that allow programmers to more easily port games from Windows to Mac. However, this is likely to only be beneficial to PC shops looking to expand, or brand new Mac porting shops, as the existing Mac porting shops are sure to have their own wrapper classes that they use when porting DirectX code.
Dynamite is a little different, and admittedly I've read very little of it, but it takes the concept that has been applied to the Transmeta chips (you remember them don't you?) and twists it into a form that will potentially allow cross-platform-deployement (we've heard this before, say it all together "Java"). Whether or not Dynamite lives up to it's promise remains to be seen. I'm not trying to imply that it can't, just that I'm skeptical at this point <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />
