    OpenGL and DirectX are probably the most widely used, not sure about Allegro and other libraries

    Doom3 uses opengl for graphics rendering as a recent example.

    excellent! I know how great these small victories can be. If you have more questions about opengl i suggest you post in the Game Development forum (even if its not game related). graphics questions tend to get more attention there.
