However, OpenGL has two major advantages over Direct3D even if you
don't consider how easy it is to use or how efficient it is:
  1.  It is not controlled by a single company (especially not a
      convicted predatory monopolist).  A sub-point of this is that
      many implementations are available for many different platforms.
  2.  O'Caml bindings are already available for OpenGL.
