First, I have to admit, I’m a newbie at this whole 3D programming
world. I watch from a far with a lot of interest but no real experience
working in that world. So I apologize ahead of time if this is a stupid
question. But I know a lot of CDT users are using the CDT to work with
3D graphic APIs and game engines so I thought I’d bounce this off you.
It was interesting to watch the response to the release of the latest major version of the OpenGL spec. The reception from the game development community was especially interesting. They were furious,
at least according to Slashdot. But I can see disappointment in other
articles I’ve read. The question came up: do we declare Microsoft the
victor in the OpenGL versus DirectX wars? To which I add, does this spell the end of the dream of gaming on Linux?
