It looks like GL 4.3 & ES 3.0 are finally heading in the right direction and MS got out of the rails with the (again!) decision to make DX 11.1 Windows 8 only.OpenGL|ES is certainly much saner than OpenGL, in the mobile world it's a good thing indeed.
OpenGL I still consider 'broken' while the bind-to-edit model still exist - it's just too easy to introduce bugs and unexpected behaviour (take VAO's; bind VAO, then bind another buffer and BAM! your original VAO is now changed unexpectedly). Don't get me wrong, OpenGL is improving and needs to because without a strong API to counter it D3D will continue to slow down and coast a bit, but bind-to-edit is just so weak when compared to immutable objects and the explicate edit model of D3D.
(Which I consider annoying as there are at least two features of GL (multi-drawindirect and AMD's PRT extension) which I'd like to play with, but every time I think about using GL it makes me sad )
As for DX11.1 - some of it is coming back to Win7 as they need it for IE10 support; I can't recall which bits off the top of my head however, nor can I recall if the interesting bits are.
