[citation][nom]jimmysmitty[/nom]Yet DX was the driving force in the industry for quite a while. OpenGL didn't have the support or backing needed to push like DX does.I think if OpenGL took off before DX did, we wouldn't have been as far ahead since it is open source and has no link or company backing it to keep it updated.Its like Linux. Linux is great, except for those who don't know how to install and run drivers or updates. Windows and the parts to it are always updated with no real work to be done.VALVe already stated that if you have an existing Steam account, then all your games will transfer over that are Mac compatable (OpenGL).[/citation]
You must not have used Linux for a while, Ubuntu updates just like Windows and OS X, any idiot can update the OS now as long as they can remember their password. I agree great Nvidia and ATI give more attention to MS but that is where demand is, for the time being.
