Sure, yeah, I know DirectX is for Windows, it won't work on other platforms unless it's changed...


But overall, is DX really less great than OpenGL?


As far as graphics go, OpenGL beats DirectX?


OpenGL beats DirectX with portability?


But does portability mean everything? No.


OpenGL beats DirectX due to DirectX's bad reputation?


But does a bad reputation mean everything? No, of course not.


What do you think I should do?


I use DirectX, not OpenGL, because I'm a real beginner and DirectX is more straight forward than OpenGL.


OpenGL doesn't have much to it itself anyways...

Going outside, far away from your computer would be a first step.
