Will this gamer ever be collecting the pre-order he placed in 2001?

DNF =/= Duke Nukem Trilogy. Duke Nukem Trilogy is a DS/PSP game.

Last few points confuse me. So who owns the rights for Duke outright now?

2k owns the rights to the game Forever.

What about Duke Nukem? The reason I ask is that all the games after Duke 3D, 3D Realms just passed the rights around and got the occasional good game like Manhattan Project, Apogee must obviously have a stake, I'm just wondering, if 3D Realms did/do own Duke Nukem, could the last game in the Duke Nukem Trilogy be the last ever Duke due to licensing issues? Unless a different game with the name 'Duke Nukem Forever' is made?
Just wondering where the copyright and licensing issues lie.

7 years worth of intrest on that 10 bucks...hmm wonder how much that would have made this poor sap
