    OpenGL has (almost) always played second fiddle to DirectX. OGL4.6 is certainly inferior to DX12, in any case. And, sadly, most (WinOS-based) game engines bolt on OGL as a helpful compatibility afterthought, they're optimized for DX ... which further disfavours their OGL performance and quality. All that being said, OGL ain't all that bad either, unless you're the sort who demands leet raw fps at ultra settings on your 4K 165Hz monitor, lol.

    But ... now we also have Vulkan! Not many games natively support it, yet. But it's "preferred" by Steam and it's even starting to gain favour with Android devs (not sure exactly why, but probably because they're locked out of DX and deem OGL a little too weak/clunky) ... so I anticipate Vulkan gaining traction in upcoming years (especially if a new Playstation comes out with embedded AMD hardware, or it Microsoft breaks Windows/DirectX again with another epic fail core update, etc). Vulkan is fully supported in linux (and Windows), of course, for those game titles which make use of it.
