I got Armada at the time, but it was a terrible, terrible game. Just a cheap cash-in on the Wing Commander name.

[H] has been among AMD's harshest Crossfire critics--before these new cards. Now [H] loves 'em--can't seem to get enough of 'em, it seems like. [H] hands down recommends them over anything nVidia makes. "Cherry picking" refers to cards that overclock better than average--can't say that about card reviews that don't overclock anything, can you?

Revisiting Rapture sounds great, but playing as Elizabeth is kind of a downturn, unless they make playing her character fun somehow.

What is really driving me nuts is that every single file operation wakes ALL my USB drives. WTF Windows .. why you waking up drives that are not taking part in IO Operations (is it because the application looks what drives are there, and that triggers resume from standby ?

These early problems with always online AAA games are not going to go away. It's always cheaper to plan server capacity based upon expected levels at the 1 week or month mark rather than spend extra for the initial surge and then decommission or reallocate servers afterwards. You just need to explain away the problems until the surge dies down and then congratulate yourselves on the budget savings.
Pay the same $1,000 for a GeForce GTX 690 if you only want one dual-slot card and your case accommodates the long board. It remains the fastest graphics solution we’ve ever tested, so there's no real reason not to favor it over Titan.
The Titan isn’t worth $600 more than a Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition. Two of AMD’s cards are going to be faster and cost less. Of course, they’re also distractingly loud when you hit them with a demanding load. Make sure you have room for two dual-slot cards with one vacant space between them. Typically, I frown on such inelegance, but more speed for $200 less could be worth the trade-off in a roomy case.

I would very much disagree in regards to the programming, at least... I write plain C code all day, and I'd kill myself if I had to do it in Windows... Mainly because I really couldn't unless I wanted to live in the ancient past of old-school ANSI C, since last I heard MS still doesn't support C99 and has no plans to support C11... They seem totally focused on C++ only... Plus, I can't live without vim! (Yes, I'm sure there's a port and of gcc, too... But, you were talking about MS's own native offerings being superior here...)

What we need is a credible alternative to Windows to keep Microsoft under pressure. Just take Windows 8 - it's quite a dramatic shift in paradigm and end users have little choice in the matter. There's only so long people can hold out with Win7. And it's unhelpful that Apple has so actively shunned game on Mac, as it leaves Windows as the only viable gaming platform.
