    In separate news, rumours have begun circulating that Valve is working on Source 2, evidenced by files in the Source Film Maker. Who here thinks they'll be favouring OpenGL this time around so they can give Microsoft the finger?

    Not on Windows they won't. However, they've ramped up their OpenGL development in support of targeting Linux for Steam (with L4D2 being their first game on the platform)

    They also decided to do OpenGL on Windows for L4D2 to see what they could do with it, and it's running even better than both their DX9 implementation and their OpenGL implementation on Linux.

    Umm, source?

    Also, DX11 is the new hotness.

    Basically, there used to be a workaround through a shortcut which when run, would send you to the desktop (similar to the "show desktop" shortcut or the "lock workstation" shortcut). Users would add this shortcut to their scheduled tasks to run immediately after logging in, sending them straight to their desktop. Microsoft removed this, and it wasn't even "leftover" code like the start button "hacks" were.
    In other news Microsoft continues its role-play as a 15 year old belligerent teenager refusing to admit its idea is bad.

    OpenGL supremacy

    One has to wonder about the superior performance on windows compared to linux, them being more familiar with the operating system as a whole or just poorly implemented graphics drivers for linux.

    Maybe both.


    Edit: Also Microsoft has mad the choice for me when it comes to operating systems, as Windows 7 blew itself up a few days ago. Been on Mint ever since. Thanks MS!

    MS making development on windows unbearable so more devs will turn to the kinnectbox whateverthingy.

    Given the direction valve has taken recently it doesn't seem to be working.

    Bam.


    OpenGL is even more hot than DX11 now, because of both mobile and now because of everybody fleeing the shit that is Windows 8. Microsoft thinks they can strong-arm the entire industry...I'm betting they are wrong.

    I wouldn't take much weight with that. Source on its own is incredibly lightweight. I'd pay more attention to it if Source actually used something more recent than SM 3.0.
