MS rarely do anything "original" ... they capitalize on business opportunities, expand and sell (this is not bad thing) ... remember MS sold DTG the entertainment rights for FSW while knowing they were working on their own product that would be in direct competition to FSW ... harsh, but it's just business.

And yes, all hail Bruce, but he didn't do it alone and the BGL format is no longer as "efficient" nor as "protected" as it used to be, so it's likely the BGL format will evolve into something else making a lot of existing content incompatible.  I would think texture support will now include BC6H/BC7 which is the preferred format for DX11/12 API which is currently not supported in an ESP/FSX platform and I'm hoping textured content will be provided some means of built in anti-theft (native file encryption/decryption support).

Time will tell, hopefully we will know more in August.

Cheers, Rob.
