Who's excited?  I'm excited.

I love the idea of the Metro UI to remove distractions and make computers more efficient (suspended apps will be taken off the CPU scheduler and most likely the video resources will only be in virtual mem).  It was a little awkward on the Dev Preview but that isn't what the CP will look like anyway.

Storage spaces is probably my favorite feature they've talked about so far.  I'm not sure I want to ditch my Win7 install yet tho...

This isn't entirely a surprise considering his recent history but heh.

Speaking to bit-tech for a forthcoming Custom PC feature about the future of OpenGL in PC gaming, Carmack said 'I actually think that Direct3D is a rather better API today.' He also added that 'Microsoft had the courage to continue making significant incompatible changes to improve the API, while OpenGL has been held back by compatibility concerns.

It's hard to believe games are starting to look this good.

Pretty dang fun too, though obviously not terribly deep.

I've been using this since the beta opened up...there's no chance of me using a different antivirus product.

As an intro, if you're wondering what 'smap' is, it's a playful take on 'spam' for those of us at nForcersHQ who like to talk crap with our friends.


I find it fascinating when a company that drives much of what we call PC gaming can't keep up. 

I finally bought the Fallout 3 addons on GfWL and laugh that people love to complain about Impulse (for some of the stupidest reasons!  But anyway.)  The client installed my addons but refused to progress fro...
