Windows Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference is currently under way, and as usual, the technical fellows at Microsoft gave speeches about the deep architecture of Windows - in this case, Windows 7 of course. As it turns out, quite some seriously impressive changes have been made to the very core of Windows - all without breaking a single application. Thanks to BetaNews for summarising this technical talk so well.

But Windows is not the only gaming platform. How about consoles? They are missing the consoles market, not only the OS X or Linux market.


How? Nobody cares if your console is running OpenGL or Direct X or something else. You don't write games for OpenGl or Direct X, you write it the game for the Xbox 360 or the Playstation 3. I don't know about the playstation, but with the xbox, the development tools also allow you to publish the exact same game for Zune and Windows as well as the console.

I don't see them missing anything.
