1) Because LCC doesn't currently have the functionality to incorporate the gaming mice at this point.
2) I can't comment on speculation, but with current Mac gaming market expanding at it's current rate, we're aware of what our customers have been requesting.

How did you map the buttons in Mac OSX. I plan on using it in WOW. I do understand that logitech does not support this mouse on MAC OSX, but it looks like the community has found a work around. C'mon Logitech. You are peripheral devices company. This is what your company is all about. Get your act together!

So with the "work around," OS X will not allow the polling rate to go above 125 Hz? Not surprising, but also not a major issue. If this is the case, does anyone know if there is a way to up the USB polling rate in OSX?
What keys do I need to use in Windows to map the CTRL, OPTION and COMMAND keys on my Mac keyboard? Will it just be CTRL, ALT, Windows Key?

So far so good using this on my Mac except:
1. Can't map the Windows Key (or combinations using it) in Set Point.
2. I can't get the Web Forward / Web Backward buttons to work at all on the Mac to save my life.
According to USB Prober, the polling interval on my Mac is 1ms = 1000Hz. This seems to be default. I didn't touch this setting while configuring in Windows.

1) Think outside the box With the G700 plugged in, go to system preferences. Click on Keyboard. In the lower right, click on "Modifier Keys". In the top pulldown, select USB receiver. This will allow you to set Alt or Ctrl to function like Command, which allows you to work around not being able to assign Windows key keystrokes
2) Don't use web forward/backward. Use the above trick, then assign Alt+[ Alt+] or Ctrl+[ Crtl+] to the keys.
And yeah, USB port poll at 1000Hz, but most mice only respond on every 8th poll, aka 125Hz. OS X appears to expect the 125Hz polling and does some sort of smoothing. If you go over in Hz, we've noticed the tracking get erratic.

Doh! This is probably my seventh Logitech mouse...you would think I would have noticed that. But then again I've been using the same Revolution for the last 4+ years. Thanks for the help.
Edit: A little less intuitive than I though when I originally read your post. I thought you were talking about an option in Setpoint, but I eventually figured it out. There is no way I would have figured this out on my own though...,I probably would have resorted to editing the XML file for my mouse profile. Thanks again.

I have seen various posts re: upcoming Mac support for the G700 or other Logitech gaming mice on these forums this year and last. Can we please have some kind of time horizon on if/when Mac support is available?
As someone who owns a G13 & G510 and uses them on a Mac, I would really like to know if I have to take the hit on this G700 (that I purchased and can no longer return) that has no Mac support and look elsewhere for another gaming mouse. I am not a PC owner so I cannot try some of the workarounds suggested.
I would very much appreciate some response from the Support team.

To Logitech Officials,
I can see that most of the people here discuss the mouse for use in games, but i purchased this mice for my job as a digital graphic designer, using CS5-photoshop and illustrator, but i cant find ways to map commands under mac, i dont have windows os, and CS5 for windows for me to configure it. My question is does "Logitech really dont have any plans of supporting mac os for this device?"

Similar situation as the above user...
Although I do have access to a windows machine, my preference would be to steer clear of it...
If someone could just confirm whether or not there will be support on OSX for this mouse at some point in the future, that would be awesome... I will hold off buying one of these until this is given...
Im currently using my MICROSOFT mouse in OSX to play games... Granted, I cant assign macros to each button etc, but come on... If I can get basic functionality with a Microsoft mouse in OSX, Logitech - you got some catching up to do
Especially that the gaming community on OSX is growing rapidly...
