Yes  Grin DirectX is less reliable, closed source and not cross-platform at all. I rather use JOGL. I agree with you.

Sadly, in gaming working on windows + xbox is more "cross-platform" than working on windows,mac and linux Sad

It is possible so use OpenGL and JOGL on many video games machines, I think it is possible to do it on XBox too but I'm not completely sure.

"nearly here" is somewhat misleading. Only the spec is "nearly here", which was initially promised to be ready for siggraph 2007. It's been "nearly here" for a year, and now almost half a year late and not a peep out of the GL3 working group except a few poor excuses. Even the newletters have dried up.

Even if/when the spec is released, and assuming that they've not made a complete mess of it (which is entirely likely given how little they seem to have done), then it'll be at least a few months before drivers are available. Likely 6 before we get some stable ones up to the quality of GL2.0 drivers. And even then it'll be 6 months to a year before the install base gets widespread enough to make them a viable target.

In other words, don't hold your breath.
