At the risk of sounding like an old fart, it wasn''t so long ago that we wrote games in 100% machine code. There were people that refused to use a high level programming language such as C. Now we use C++.

My point I suppose is that tools, languages, developer environments will always evolve, if you don''t evolve with them then you get left behind.

Never say Never.

I think .net will not completly remove C++
Maybe it will play a role in Game Development

I think that Arguments a la .net is to slow for Game Development are not actually because everbody has today a computer with more than 1 800Mhz and a Gefoce 1/2

there is a OpenGL Port for .net and a DirectX Port
So .net will be a real cool technology in the future

A few alternative, completely random, replies pop up in my head:

1) Yes.

2) No. Macromedia Flash already did that.

3) Maybe. Why do you ask? Want to skip learning C/C++ and only pick up the bare minimum knowledge required to conquer the gaming industry and get stinking rich, famous and popular with those cute blondes with wet t-shirts and ample bossoms that the Illuminati prevents you from ever meeting in real life? A-HA, I knew it! Sadly, it doesn't work, I tried it too.

EDIT: Sorry if that didn't make much sense. I didn't get any sleep tonight.

everyone wants to know if Microsoft wins again and this time Gates seems to have much confident than ever.

.net is a programming language or something like that. As such it can''t take over anything . Maybe it will become more widely used, but who''s to say that? You should ask in a forum for market analysis, maybe?
