    At the end they say there looking at open-sourcing a DX->OpenGL wrapper, so we could start to see a bunch more game ports from that ☺

    Also they recommend that people develop under OpenGL rather than Direct3D. Or at least the nvidia guy did, the Valve guy pointed out Intel had craptastic drivers for some chips so I don't know if we will be seeing HL3 as OpenGL by default...

    Also it would be nice to see the steam hardware survey give figures for actual OpenGL capabilities rather than just the level of DirectX support and what it's rough OpenGL equivalent is. Linux might have a lot fewer OpenGL capable users and the Intel opensource ones are still at 3.x levels. Does a Windows system that supports a certain level of DirectX necessaries have OpenGL support, after all MS would require DX for certification but have no reqs for OpenGL so there could be plenty of Windows systems that have poor OpenGL support, maybe there are plenty of people who are just using the Windows drivers rather than installing the vendor ones. Also what extensions are realistically usable.

    Ha, ya, I was starting to think I'd get seasick if that kept up much longer.
