Microsoft's PC initiative, GDC 2015. GFWL 2.0 (I mean Windows 10/Store/SDK)
GFWL 2.0, Oh i mean. Xbox Live SDK for Windows 10
Bring your game across all Windows 10 devices (Console, mobile, tablet, Xbox One). Assuming you decide to stop buying/selling on Steam.
ID@Xbox to Windows Store/10
Wireless adapter for Xbox controllers, on Windows 10
Elite to Xbox One. Not 100% confirmation on cross platform
Some MOBA coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 with cross platform.
Everything is focused around Windows 10 and the assumption everyone will leap to it. Which if its just the good of Windows 7 and 8.1, and might not be a bad thing. Have to wait and see how it works with compatible

Normally I would say it's a great deal, but since it's Microsoft...

Oh, and I do not have a personal crusade against NMS. I do dislike it, but I wouldn`t call it a crusade, since I do not remember it`s still a thing often enough to undertake any actual crusading.

Microsoft, make that stuff unterrible. I swear, I'll install Linux on something if you pull another GFWL. Maybe I won't use it, but dammit, it'll sit there taunting you.

"Hello, Folks! Microsoft here. We're still relevant, you know? Here's some news. See? Will you please stick with us? Pretty please? We're for real this time. Promise. Can we be friends again?"
"Aww come on... Don't be like that. We'll give you Win10 for free! No strings attached! Promise!"
Windows 10 brings together one core operating system, one application platform, one gaming social network, one store, and one ingestion path across all Windows PCs, Tablets, Phones and Xbox One consoles

I dunno, the idea of being able to carry saves between platforms is pretty cool. I don't think I'd ever have anything other than a PC/laptop for that to work, but for the people who are invested in that ecosystem, seems sensible to me.
That said, preventing people from putting their stuff on other providers is just not going to work. It hasn't worked with their indie scheme (you either bring it to Xbox One before or at the same time as the PS4 or not at all) and I can't imagine it will work here.
But hey, at least they're not charging for this.

You can move saves between platforms on steam
Anyway grrrr, strategy of let's make money by vertical monopoly instead of let's make money from good products. The dicks.

If cross-device play drops the barrier between PC and Xbox multiplayer, the size of that consolidated market could not be ignored by developers large and small. At the very least, we would be rid of Microsoft acquiring in-development tent pole games just to subvert them into Xbox exclusives.
If its an attempt to save consoles and eradicate PC annoyances caused by consoles, I'd say that's a win win. Console games could become slightly smarter. PC games could become less dumbed down.

I'm running the Windows 10 tech preview, and it's REALLY good. Fast and responsive, even faster than 8.1. And we already know that Win 8 is slightly better when it comes to gaming performance, so assuming Win 10 will continue that, we're in for a treat.
However the Windows store can suck a dick, it belongs on a mobile platform not on a desktop PC. Games and Programs downloaded from the Windows store exist in their own pocket dimension, they're not "real" windows programs, they don't even exist in the "Add/Remove Programs" list...
But I can happily ignore the store and just use Windows as normal, as an OS.
