Its a ATI software that allows DX functions to be translated to Open GL functions.
IMHO htis could very well be the thing that allows DX games to move to Linux/Mac OS.

It's certainly another gap filled. But breakthrough? No. This is the kind of area where the only way a true breakthrough with this kind of thing is going to happen is when everything is finished and works. Up until then, it's 'just' progress in the right direction.
What does the Fox say?

"ATI has open sourced software that converts the DX 9 (API) into Open GL..." - edited for clarity...
Well, that should greatly improve ATI's standing with the Open community. It should also help the likes of Wine, Cadega, and ReactOS...
I wonder which would be better, Cedega with its DirectX API, or Cedega with ATI's conversion tool???

You got to remember too, not all gamers are technically inclined like us; linux scares them or they never heard of it, and they are still stuck in theworld where Macs suck. Linux is getting a lot better, user friendly wise but there is always room for improvement. However, If i really wanted to, i could switch completly to Linux for all i use my computer for.... most people could actually. Internet, Email, word processing, Chat, you can do all these things on Linux just as easily as you can windows...
