OpenGL stands for Open Audio Library, and is a cross-platform API, used to interpret calls made from games and other software into audible results.

Its competitor, DirectX, is only available on Microsoft platforms, and on Linux through WINE as a limited implementation. OpenAL is dominant on Mac OS X and Linux and is also available for Microsoft Windows.
