    Smile Which is better: OpenGL or DirectX

    Alright, I know i'll get flamed for this but which is easier OpenGL or DirectX. If I learn OpenGL, and get used to it, should I get better or go to DirectX? If I apply for a job, does a company look at expience with 3rd party API's? Do companies use OpenGL? I know microsoft probably uses DirectX, so won't that help me in the long run?

    I thought as a child,
    I reasoned as a child.
    When I became a man,
    I put childish ways behind me"
