3D News, GL, DirectX "Khronos Group, the association behind OpenGL, has today announced the fourth generation of its cross-platform API spec, which takes up the mantle of offering a viable competitor to Microsoft's DirectX 11. The latest release includes two new shader stages for offloading geometry tessellation from the CPU to the GPU, as well as tighter integration with OpenCL to allow the graphics card to take up yet more duties off the typically overworked processor."

Directx is series of APIs that work in a perfect symbiosis together making it ridiculously easy life for the coders.

if Linux had viable choice for Directx as whole, it could easily chomp 50% of Windows's marketshare within months of time.
