Sorry if this was asked before, I cant search for Cg...it''s too short. But I was just wondering if a lot of companies out there use it. I remember watching some video on it where developers spoke about and said great things, but I dont really hear much of anything about it anymore.

PlanetSide appears to use it, given the log messages it spits out.

We use it, to generate vertex shader code out of text-level shaders (we then ship the generated shaders).

However, now that GL is getting GLSL, and DX9 has HLSL (which is similar to the Cg syntax), Cg is likely not going to be the biggest mainstream thing. Which is too bad, as it allows write-once run-on-both-platforms.
