3D News, GL, DirectX The OpenGL Architecture Review Board officially announced OpenGL 3 on August 8th 2007 at the Siggraph Birds of a Feather (BOF) in San Diego, CA. OpenGL 3 is the official name for what has previously been called OpenGL Longs Peak. OpenGL 3 is a true industry effort with broad support from all vendors in the ARB. The OpenGL 3 specification is on track to be finalized at the next face-to-face meeting of the OpenGL ARB, at the end of August. This means the specification can be publicly available as soon as the end of September, after the mandatory 30 day Khronos approval period has passed. Also presented were the changes to the OpenGL Shading Language that will accompany OpenGL 3. For more details check here, here and here.

More OpenGL games perhaps?

I seriously hope that will will push devs to develop games using OpenGL so that they can also be ported to Linux.

And for those who say just play a console: It's a matter of choice. Some games are much better being played using a keyboard and a mouse. So to each and his own.

More than to Linux, that would be OSX. Linux market is small and should still prove itself in sales.

Don't blame producers if they don't consider a market: show them it's worth to do it.
