Microsoft "Most people understand that Windows is used by a variety of people who have a variety of needs, ranging from corporate server to workstation to POS terminals to home PC and beyond. Most people accept that whenever Microsoft updates Windows, it has to balance the competing requirements to find some kind of workable compromise. There is however another set of competing requirements that many do not really register, even those that call themselves power users or are IT admins. It is a conflict between developers/programmers and Microsoft itself."

I signed NDA so i can't really say, but there's one console manufacturer that uses OpenGL exclusively nowadays, you are likely not licensed for it.

About Sony, you definitely don't know what you are talking about, but developing for their native PS3 library is more painful than testicular torsion.

Yeah, that Ouya console or that SteamBox has really captured the imagination of the masses.

I'll put it this way, 2 devices that you can purchase in GameStop today, that sell boxed retail games use OpenGL.
