This is fantastic, we need to keep moving toward these universal APIs. One of the reasons I don't like Nvidia Gameworks, as it only benefits them. But anything that consistently is designed as a collaborative group to work across various hardwares, and be standardized is good by my own standards.

Good news. Sure beats having fragmentation that's going on right now. VP9 on one side (mostly Google only), H.265 with royalty and patent issues on another, others using various forms of H.264... open standards that everyone uses together solves a lot of problems.

Great news. Unfortunately DX12 is Windows 10 only so I really hope Vulkan (with its cross platform support) comes out on top as the next big graphics API. Gaming on Linux could actually be just as good or better than Windows. Although we would need AMD and Nvidia to really make their Linux drivers good enough (I'm especially looking at you AMD).
