Sounds cool... but why did they demo it with a game that's available for Mac? Why didn't they do Half-Life or something?

Prey is pretty demanding. Half LIfe 2 - not so much.

Not really interesting... porting companies already have and even sell libraries to change DirectX code to OpenGL code. I'd rather see more use and development of OpenGL.

Does this mean that DirectX is a good thing? People ready to bash anything about windows and now cheering that DirectX support / compatability will be available in OSX? Not trying to point fingers but I always find the community a bit hypocritical. Intel getting bashed months before it was in a mac and then all of a sudden its the reverse...people all over the intel stuff like its the greatest thing since sliced bread.

OpenGL is all but over for gaming, too bad I think, DX is where it's at now. I mean when Carmack starts praising it, well that's a pretty good indicator. Sad really, openGL is always so nice for frame rate and speed.
