I just want to network in managed code. I know how to use DirectPlay in C++, but according to the the "managed documentation", I see this: Warning: Microsoft DirectPlay has been deprecated. I know I can still use this, but it DirectPlay is unofficial now, what do I use for managed code?

Just don't use it, it isn't much harder to get things going by just using simple tcp sockets (or udp if you need them).

If you really want some good network library and don't have the time to write one yourself, use a good one and not DirectPlay!

Yes, that's the standard reply. I agree that the networking stuff can be done using sockets, but what about the voice stuff? My guess is that they'll probably enforce the use of Indigo once Windows Vista (Longhorn sounded better :p) is released... maybe they'll include some kind of standard voice over IP thingy with that, but until then... what to do??
