OpenGL history??!? need help

I am looking for at good history site that has something on the history of OpenGL, and perhaps a history comparison between OGL and D3D.

can anybody help me?

Here is one interesting link on the OpenGL & D3D relationship. It’s a bit dated now but is a good exposition of what happened back then:

Here’s the newsgroup history discussion thread:

That one is tough to parse.

Another link on the technical stuff, the identity of the authors in some of the stuff is significant.

Thank you very much

I read the article by Carmack in the first link … wow … couldn’t have said it better myself
