OpenGL Freed

Linux.com reports that SGI has relicensed OpenGL, saying that up until now the software licenses for the graphics library first released in 1999 were never accepted by the Free Software Foundation or the Open Source Initiative. Now after rewrites of both the SGI Free License B and the GLX Public License, OpenGL is truly open, a development the FSF calls "one of the greatest given to the community by a proprietary company." The background on this is pretty interesting, as the problem with the licenses has apparently been an "open secret" for some time now. Thanks Ant and Slashdot.

Can't use DirectX on the Wii, PS2, PS3, PSP, or OSX. A company which integrates direct x anywhere other than the periphery of its codebase is fuckin itself..
