Game development in dotnet

Hi,
I'm looking for information about companies using dotnet for the next
generation of games. I've been impressed by the managed examples that
come with the dx9 sdk, they're a huge step up from those available with
the dx8 and below sdk's.
There also seem to be a number of books covering this subject, but then
I've still got a copy of "C++ real-time graphics" which probably didn't
inspire the original wolfenstein ;)

If you can recommend any community sites which deal with this, or
provide insights I'd appreciate it. I'm not looking to move into the
industry, I touched it briefly and didn't gel, but there are some
projects I'm interested in :)

I hope that's not too ambiguous, ++thanks.

Ian

Try www.gamedev.net. They have a lot of great articles for both managed
and unmanaged game development, plus really good forums for asking
questions.
www.flipcode.com is also another good site.
