    Great to see a dev conference where Direct3D won't be the one and only discussed topic.

    You've got to give it to Steam, they've certainly got balls. They're going head to head against Microsoft.

    Now I'm just an individual, my power in the market place is microscopic. But as someone who used Windows 95 to Windows 7 and was playing around with a little bit of game development with C# and .Net, for me Windows 8 was the equivalent of Microsoft kicking me in the balls and spitting in my face. I shan't be happy until Microsoft has been destroyed. And I shall try and contribute in some small way to that end. I get the sense though that some of the bigger players in the industry, might not feel totally dissimilar to me.
