Gaming's Future at MS

Microsoft's big PC plans on GameSpot outlines what they've learned about what the near-future holds as far as gaming goes at the Redmond software giant. Word is there will not be a Direct X 10 (Direct X X?) anytime soon, as they gear up for the release of their next operating system, codenamed "Longhorn." There are also details on plans for a "standard controller," and word that MS wants users to consider gaming to be a primary reason to upgrade to Longhorn. Here's a bit on Longhorn gaming:

As has been rumored, Longhorn will likely include a major overhaul in Window's visual presentation, which may include 3D interface elements. Lester also said it would include a special "My Games" view that would centralize all the matchmaking, control panel settings, patching tools, and game lists and make such tasks much simpler. Microsoft is working on streamlining a number of current technical trouble areas, like the installation process and display drivers, and will centralize game updates through a Windows Update-like patch server. It's also looking into making it possible to run Windows games directly from the CD without installation. Somewhat more straightforward features include adding sophisticated matchmaking into Microsoft Messenger and parental controls over which users can play certain games.

and we could all wear name tags with our posting alias.

I can imagine one guy walking around wearing 5 name tags.

A couple of funny combinations:

Evil Goof
Chance

Fred 1.0/2.0
Ray (I could see putting you hear nin, but that's too easy).

You get the idea.
