    Yes and no.
    You can easily compare it with DirectX in matters of general usage, but it has some major advantages.
    <UL TYPE=SQUARE>1. It is platform independend. DirectX is only bound to Windows
    2. It is specified by a comitee and not by a single company. This will help to keep versions downward compatible and satisfy everyones needs.
    3. It is build by professionals for professionals (wich doesn't mean it is useless for end-users). Due to this it will have several features above DirectX which are temporarily missing for professional/high-end use.
    4. It is an open standard and will be available for everyone, though controled by the Khronos Group members. Everyone is invited to help creating this API.[/list]
