Heh; remember the Bungie chat on Efnet following the buyout? The chat was moderated (i.e. no one but ops could speak), and then it would be demoderated for five seconds (three or five, I don't remember) before it went moderated again. The results proved rather interesting...

6:14 PM: ekoSonic: Now that you are part of Microsoft, will the technology behind the games be shifted to DirectX, or will it remain OpenGL? Microsoft is making a hard push for DirectX (take the decision of Epic regarding supporting DirectX over other API's), will this influence the availability of games for the Mac, or will you take that into consideration when developing, to ease compatibility for mac games?
