    Question Some More Questions About OpenGL:

    Can it be used to make a professional-quality game(like a PS2 game)?

    Do professional game programmers use it?

    Is it easier to use than Direct X?

    Is it more powerful than Direct X?

    if you've ever played any of Id Software's modern games, it uses OpenGL.

    Oh yeah, if you want to open your program up to Linux, OpenGL is a good API. Linux can use OpenGL too (actually it can use it better than Windoze)
