    The main difference between OpenGL and DirectX is that OpenGL is purely for graphics while DirectX also has stuff for sound and input.

    As for which is better, it depends on how you use them.

    And ofcourse OpenGL's cross platform portability.

    thanx, here is something that helped me decide to learn openGL instead of dX

    Thanks!
    I've been programming C++ for four years now. I taught myself using mainly books and some info from the internet.
    I haven't been into game programming for a few years now; games are so extremly complex and require artists, programmers, composers, directors and voice actors nowadays, whereas a program or utility can be made by a single programmer and still be extremly useful for a lot of people.

    But Game programming is fun and in a year, when more spare time will be available, perhaps I'll start another project.

    if opengl is just for pure graphics, then in an opengl game how do you use sound at all? or is there just no sound at all? and about input? isn't that pretty much necessary in a game? how can opengl just not use it? what supplies in the input then?

    you use other libraries, API's, etc. to handle sound, input, etc.

    Some people use OpenGL for graphics and DirectX for everything
    else (see the NeHe game tutorial series for examples). For sound
    check out OpenAL and FMOD.

    Portable

    Be portable, use SDL & OpenGL

    www.libsdl.org
    % gcc -v
    Configured with: FreeBSD/i386 system compiler
    Thread model: posix
    gcc version 3.3.3 [FreeBSD] 20031106

    If you are using OpenGL for graphics, it'd be stupid to use DX for sound and input. Sure it is nice, but OpenGL is cross-platform.
